' Ships and Seamen' a dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
' He is one of the greatest mariners that sails the seas both as a navigator and as a commander. His vessel is a galleon of about 400 tons and a perfect sailer. His crew he treats with affection and they treat him with respect..... He dines and sups to the music of viols ; he carries painters who paint for him pictures of the coast in its exact colours..... Each thing is so naturally depicted that no one who guides himself according to these paintings can possibly go astray.'-Fletcher : The World Encompass'd.
The above quotation is a sixteenth-century description of Sir Francis Drake , the greatest of the Elizabethan seamen. You will hear this afternoon something about him and the ships of his time as well as of the growth of England's trade and the increasing importance of her Navy until the days of Captain Cook.

: ' WHY DO YOU BELIEVE THAT?'

Questions and Answers on today's moralities put by W. J. H. Sprott
Answered by Kenneth Goom
(A recording of the talk broadcast in the Northern programme on February 11, 1938)
(From North)
This is one of a series of conversations in which Mr. Sprott will talk to men of strong convictions usually unorthodox. He is lecturer in philosophy at the University College of Nottingham. Many fathers and mothers will be amused that the subject to be discussed today is whether parents can be trusted to bring up their children.

@ Making the Most of Your
Looks
' Overcoming Disadvantages'
Mary Embrey
Making the most of your looks-your skin, your hair, your hands : this is a subject to appeal to women. And since Mary Embrey created a precedent by giving the first talk in a broadcast series on personal appearance in October of last year she has won an ever-increasing audience. It is good news to women that her talks are to go on. The latest to praise her is the discerning radio critic of The Listener, Mrs. Grace Wyndham Goldie.

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.
