'The Swing of the Seasons '
Stanley's Darkest Africa'
J. GRANVILLE SQUIERS
Sir Henry Morton Stanley , 1841-1904 (his real name was John Row -lands), was brought up in St Asaph workhouse ; he shipped as cabin boy to New Orleans and was adopted by a cotton-broker Henry Stanley , whose name he assumed. He became a naturalised American, but was later re-naturalised as British.
After various vicissitudes, he made headway as a newspaper correspondent and was eventually sent by the New York Herald to find
David Livingstone , who (as listeners heard in he last talk in this series) was
" in the interior of Africa. He found him, and described his journey n ' How I Found Livingstone'. On hearing of Livingstone's death he went out to Africa again. During a second African journey he traced the course of the Nile. This journey he described in ' In Darkest Africa
In today's talk Granville Squiers is to give listeners a vivid picture of Stanley's two journeys, of his ordeals and courage, and they will hear something of what he discovered and what he achieved.

R. H. S. CROSSMAN
This is the first of three talks to Sixth Forms by different speakers on problems of democracy. Richard Crossman , who is to tell listeners that the first task of the democrat is to know that he does not, and cannot, know everything, is still a young man, but a seasoned broadcaster, who had a distinguished academic career. He was a schofar of Winchester College, where he became ' Prefect of Hall or head of the school. He won a scholarship to
New College, Oxford, where he became a Fellow and Tutor.
In 1934 he made his radio debut, giving several talks on Germany-labour camps, unemployment clubs, and so forth, which he knew at first hand. In 1935 he contributed a talk to 'Youth. Looks Ahead' and the following year gave no fewer than eleven talks on ' If Plato Lived Again'..

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.
