: THE HOUSE AND THE MAN

' Mrs. Percy Wyndham at
Clouds House'
Edith Olivier
Previous talks in this series have dealt with such men of action as Sir Redvers Buller and T. E. Lawrence.
In this talk listeners will hear of a remarkable woman who created perhaps the most famous of all the great Victorian country houses. Clouds House in Wiltshire was the masterpiece of Philip Webb , who designed it in 1885. Under Mrs. Wyndham it was the centre of Victorian society, artistic and political. Burne-Jones, William Morris , Arthur Balfour , and Lord Curzon were some of those who were entertained there.
Edith Olivier has lived close to
Clouds all herjife and will describe this bygone world from her own memories.

: THE ARCTIC TODAY-TWENTY YEARS OF BRITISH EXPLORATION

2—' Endeavours in the Past'
Raymond E. Priestley , D.Sc.
Dr. Priestley, who is now Vice-Chancellor and Principal of Birmingham University, was a member of two expeditions to the Antarctic-Shackleton's in the Nimrod in 1907-9, and Scott's famous one of 1910-13, in which he was one of the Northern party. His connection with recent exploration in the North is a very real one, because it was largely due to his enthusiasm and a set of lectures he was giving in Cambridge after the war that Britain's younger generation of explorers became inspired to travel there.
In tonight's talk Dr. Priestley is going to look at Northern exploration in the past, and show how motives and methods have changed with the years in the long endeavour to conquer and harness the region.

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.
