Ⓓ Regional Geography
' Russia '
' The Conquest of Frost'
H P. SMOLKA
Here is the first of three talks-the first two on Russia-by H. P. Smolka , who spent a winter in the Polar regions of Russia a year or two ago. He is going to tell listeners how the Russian people have made valiant attempts to bring these frozen parts of the world to life.
Mr. Smolka, who is the author of '40.000 against the Arctic', and was the first man other than a Russian to reach the farthest outposts of Northern Siberia and the Asian
K:-aSVtan^ railway and by aeroplane to the coast. There the people showed him how they tried to conquer frost and why they did it. He went on to towns farther inland, and will say something about them. Listeners will notice that on page 26 of the pamphlet there is a photograph of a man walking along a wide street with a little girl. The town is
Igarka, the little girl is from one of the schools there, and the man is Mr. Smolka himself.

'Fur'
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by RHODA POWER
There is a record of an advertisement dated 1671 for a sale at Garraway's Coffee House of 3,000-weight of beaver skins belonging to the Governor and Company of Merchant Adventurers trading into Hudson's Bay; and it is interesting to note what traders at about that time were giving in exchange for beaver skins: powder, shot, hatchets, knives, beads, and so forth.
The lure of the fur trade attracted adventurous Frenchmen and English-men to Canada and was the cause of much rivalry. Today you will hear how the traders fared and will meet some members of the famous Company of Merchant Adventurers of England trading into Hudson's Bay.

: TEA-TIME TALK

@ Life on a Citrus Farm
Geraldine Jordi
Although not South African bom, Mrs. Jordi has spent more than half her life in South Africa ; and yet, until her husband and she took up land as Ex-Officer Settlers in 1921 they had never lived in a farming district. Any kind of farming was new to them. Like their neighbours, they had to start from the beginning, learning everything as they went along, and they are proud of having had their share in turning a wilderness into one of the most important citrus-producing areas in the world. Irrigation citrus farms were a new and uncertain venture in South
Africa when they went out there. They learnt many things besides how to grow citrus during their years as settlers.

: Experimental Hour, No. 6 ' HELLAS '

A Lyrical Drama by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Composed in the autumn of 1821 Scene: A terrace on the Seraglio,
Constantinople
Time: Sunset
Cast
Chorus of Greek Captive Women, directed by Elsie Fogerty , C.B.E.
Production by Barbara Burnham
In the spring of 1821 the Greeks rebelled against their Turkish oppressors ; in the summer of that year Shelley's friend, Prince Mavrocordato left for Greece to join the insurgents ; and in the autumn Shelley wrote this poem, dedicating it to Mavrocordato.
' Written at the suggestion of the events of the moment', Shelley himself said, Hellas is a mere improvise, and derives its interest solely from the intense sympathy which the author feels with the cause he would celebrate.' But its interest was never merely topical. 'Hellas ', wrote Mary Shelley after her husband's death, 'was among the last of his compositions, and is among the most beautiful. The choruses are singularly imaginative, and melodious in their versification.'

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.
