Travel Talk
' The Swing of the Seasons '
Marooned in the Antarctic '
A. STEVENS
Here is a talk about a very unpleasant thing-being marooned in the Antarctic-by a man who was with Shackleton's 1913 Expedition ; during which the Great War broke out. The story he has to tell is of adventure in the grimmest circumstances-of a fine hut to live in but no fuel to warm it ; of men who became their own tailors and their own cobblers, too ; of great hardship, and of rescue that came at last.

: 'EFFICIENCY AND LIBERTY'

France
Percy Philip
Athens or Sparta ? Are the forms of government which these ancient communities represented alternatives ? Or is it possible to mix the advantages of both forms in one State ? This ancient problem of politics is being posed to the Europe of today in new terms. How far do the different European countries of 1938 combine efficiency as a nation with the liberty of the individual citizen?
Italy was the first great power to be examined, last week, in a series of talks surveying this question. Tonight Percy Philip will talk about France, and wiil be questioned afterwards by Wilson Harris , Editor of The Spectator. Mr. Philip is an experienced journalist, and for the past fifteen years has been Paris correspondent of The New York Times.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
