Commander R. T. Gould
Sea monsters have been the subject of controversy through the ages, and surely the Loch Ness Monster has been among the most discussed of them all. It has drawn crowds to Scotland, it has been cartooned ; by some scoffed at as a myth-by others firmly believed in. Foremost among those who believe in its existence is the well-known author, broadcaster, and contributor to the RADIO Times, Lieut.-Commander R. T. Gould. His book ' The Loch Ness Monster and Others ' contains the evidence of sixty witnesses who, he has satisfied himself, were soberly relating their actual experiences. All interested in the curious will be eager to hear his vindication of the monster tonight.

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

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.
