The dreadful epidemic which has been causing such ravages in Calcutta and the southern provinces has broken out in camp. It is a species of cholera morbus. There is an opinion that the water in the tanks, the only water we have at this place, may be unwholesome and add to the disease (Major-General Lord Hastings, 1877)
Cholera has Been in the headlines this year, but is unlikely ever again to attack mankind with the ferocity of the great pandemics of the last century. Written by ARTHUR SWINSON Narrator DAVID MAHLOWE Other parts ANTONY BODEN

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.
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.
