: 'THE VOICE OF THE SEAMAN'

by A. L. Lloyd
A dramatic account of the lives and working conditions of seamen in British ships the world over
Produced by Laurence Gilliam
Here is a feature programme which promises to be outstanding in its class. The author, A. L. Lloyd , is a working seaman who, as a result of hearing the production last August of the Columbia Workshop radio show, Job to be done, decided that he would like to do the same thing for the British Mercantile Marine. Invited by Laurence Gilliam to prepare a script, he got down to work and within a short time had presented the producer with a practically flawless broadcast script.
There is both punch and poetry in this sound picture of Britain's 16,000 merchant seamen at work, the whole being centred in the person of Seaman Jack Smith of the merchantman Matapan, bound from Cardiff to the West Indies with a cargo of canned goods and cotton frocks. Throughout the broadcast the seaman speaks. He speaks in the voice of Devon, of Wales, of Scotland, of East London, and of Yorkshire, for the men who go down to the sea in British ships, come from every corner of the country, from every class, and from every type of environment.
To present a comprehensive picture of merchant shipping, with all that it implies, is an almost Herculean task, yet A. L. Lloyd has done it. Whether it is in the feeling of an oil-tanker sweltering down to Ahadan, in the atmosphere of the Madeira docks, fogged with coal dust, or in the tinkling music of a Panama seamen's ' dive ', the Mercantile Marine will come right across tonight.
In the concluding words of the broadcast, ' keeping Great Britain maritime nation number one is a hell of a big job ', and here is the story of how it is done.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
