: A GRENFELL WORKER IN NEWFOUNDLAND

Audrey S. Monro
It is forty-seven years since the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen sent a hospital ship across the Atlantic for service among the Newfoundland and Labrador fishermen. Dr. Grenfell, now Sir Wilfred Grenfell , was in charge of this service. He has since built up a wonderful organisation which provides medical and social services along some thousand miles of coast. Conditions in the remote seafaring hamlets and villages of these latitudes are primitive and severe, particularly in the winter, and it is an account of some months spent in them as a worker for the Grenfell Association that Mrs. Audrey S. Monrowill give this morning.
Although the conditions under which she worked were arduous and the tasks she had to perform often Herculean, she fell a ready victim to the spell of the district, and will have plenty to say about the scenic and seasonal marvels of the wild coast where she voluntarily made her home.

: 'THE WOODCUTTER'S ARMS'

A short story written for broadcasting by L. A. G. Strong , and read by the author
L. A. G. Strong is one of the most interesting short-story writers of today, and in ' The Woodcutter's Arms' he has written a story gf characteristic insight and simplicity.
Arriving in Canterbury in the early evening and in search of lodging, the writer is directed to a strange little back-street tavern, in which he has a peculiar encounter. He is at a loss to understand the hostile attitude of his hostess, but a meeting later in the evening with a philosophical little bicycle merchant helps to unravel the mystery for him. There is a certain eeriness in the midnight setting of the tale, btit with the morning sunshine the traveller is able to depart faintly puzzled as to why-and he knows he will-he must for the rest of his life remember a pair of eyes and a scolding voice.

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.
