: ' THE WHITE WHALE ', NO.

A serial reading from Herman Mel ville's ' Moby Dick '
During the last few weeks Geoffrey Tandv has been reading to you how Ishmael shipped in a whaleman from Nantucket, and how from the first the voyage has been full of mystery and foreboding because of the behaviour of her captain-Ahab. Even his officers do not know what to make of him. He rarely speaks, and when he does it is with un-reasoned outbursts which lapse into moody soliloquies addressed only to himself or to the sea.
In this instalment Ishmael and the whole ship's company are to learn at last what it is that possesses this strange old man, and this is the first climax of Melville's book. He presents it dramatically, and the broadcast must present it in the same way. The part of Ahab is played by Robert Farquharson.

: 'PHOTOGRAPHY IN THE SERVICE OF MANKIND'

Olaf Bloch , LL.D.
Olaf Bloch, who is chief chemist of a large firm of photographic chemists, will discuss some of the manifold uses to which photography is put in the service of science, and consequently mankind. Photographv today may indeed be called the ' recording angel ' of modern life, for there is scarcely an activity with which it does not concern itself, from the building of bridges to the detection of criminals. High-speed cameras can record the processes ot splitting the atom, the marvellous lenses of today are invaluable in X-ray work, and it goes without saying that if it were not for photography only a small proportion of man's present knowledge of the stars would be possible.
Making a photographic film is a process that must be carried out with the utmost care. Girls working in a film factory must be vacuum-cleaned before they enter, lest dust get on to the emulsion with which the film is coated.

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.
