Reaching out eastwards from Moscow for thousands of miles is the Trans-Siberian Railway, probably the greatest achievement of its kind in the world. It leaves the Occident at Moscow and reaches the Orient in Vladivostok, Russia's most easterly seaport.
The speaker this afternoon has travelled on this railway and knows Vladivostok well.

'The Blacksmith'
S. P. B. Mais
vans have recently visited two smithies of very different kinds, one in Nottinghamshire, the other in Sussex.
Standing on the village green of Wellow in Notts is Richard True-man's smithy, a forge in the real old tradition. But in that of Frederick Bish of Shoreham all modern improvements have been installed. No horse ever enters the Bish smithy, which, with all-electrical apparatus, is concerned with motor cars, tractors, and modern iron-work.
S. P. B. Mais will link the recordings with narration, and the two smiths, who have never met before, will be in the studio to talk about fheir jobs.
3.30 * Interlude

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.
