: 'THE WHITE WHALE',

No. 11
A serial reading from Herman Melville's ' Moby Dick ', by Geoffrey Tandy
The Pequod is still on her way to the whaling grounds proper, although the boats have already been lowered once-but with no success.
The most thrilling thing about this lowering is the appearance (as it were from nowhere) of a boat's crew that the ship's company had never seen before. But they are all dusky men and they man the boat before the Captain himself, an unusual thing in the whale fishery-but then. with Ahab's monomania for hunting Moby Dick , this is an unusual voyage.
In this instalment the Pequod falls in with the whaleman, Town Ho /, which is homeward bound, and they hear her story.

: FRENCH TALK

Petite histoire littéraire de
L'Entente Cordiale'
Paul Morand from Paris
Paul Morand , Conseiller d'Ambassade, homme de lettres, knows this country well, and can be counted among its best French friends. He was educated at Oxford, and served in the French Embassy in London from 1913 to 1916. In 1920, while still in the Diplomatic Service, he turned to writing and has since published many travel books-more than one about England.
This evening he will discuss the influence that each country has had on the other's literature over the last three centuries.

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.
