: ' THE WORLD GOES BY '

This weekly feature has always had a tremendous appeal, for it has brought to the microphone, and will continue to bring, live personalities in the world's news. To secure those who are achieving things and to persuade them to come to the microphone while their news is topical makes it impossible to announce names in advance, but that, after all, is no drawback, for it provides that essential to the art of entertainment-the element of surprise.
Personalities broadcasting tonight, and in the future, will be as vivid and interesting as any that have been heard before. In the first broadcast of the new series on October 6 listeners heard, for instance, Tangier Smith , the explorer-naturalist, describing his search for the Giant Panda in Central Asia; Jock Marshall, the one-armed Australian explorer, giving an account of his visit to the balloonist Andre's base on Spitsbergen ; and W. H. Hindle giving memories of The Morning Post, which disappeared as a separate newspaper during that week. The following week listeners heard Tommy Farr , just back from America, describing his experiences ; Sturge Whiting , who had made a special trip on the footplate of one of the new L.M.S. expresses, describing what it was like ; and Captain Powell, one of the Imperial Airways commanders, describing the cross-Atlantic flights, and Bonnet Laird , the famous old broadcaster, giving an account of his travels in the Far East.
Each week F. H. Grisewood will introduce the speakers, and on the last Wednesday of each month listeners will be taken down into the country for a programme mainly devoted to the interests of the country-dweller.

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.
