The Story of an African Farm bV OLIVE SCHREINER abridged in five parts by DONALD BANCROFT
Read by Eva Haddon
Olive Schreiner died In Cape Town on 10 December 1920. It was this novel (first published in 1883), much of which is autobiographical, which established her name in literature. Sir Charles Dilke even acclaimed it as the greatest novel In the English language. Be that as It may, the tale has a sincerity and realism found only rarely today, and it abounds with humour, sensitivity, and not a little sadness. 1: A Disturber of the Peace

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.
