: 'THE AFRICAN ELEPHANT AT HOME'

Frank Melland
The elephant's reputation for intelligence is well known. It is not so commonly realised that some ele- phants show surprising individual traits. They may be, in a word, ' personalities '. Frank Melland , who was in Central Africa for over a quarter of a century, has had a great experience of the wild elephant and its ways. He is going to tell some stories about the elephants' he has known.

'South and East'—
' Whitstable and Native Oysters '
J. B. Warner
C. Waters
A fortnight ago an account was broadcast of the Selsey fishery in this series which is telling listeners something about the activities of the country districts of the counties not far from London. Today they are to hear an account of the Whitstable Oyster fishery from two men who were both born in Whitstable and know the industry by heart. Mr. Warner is still in the fishery. Mr. Waters has retired. He also, by the way, was on the 'hoys' that used to carry goods from London to Whitstable in the old days.

(Section D)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Malcolm Sargent
Olga Haley (mezzo-soprano)
Delius's opera Irmelin was composed in 1890-2 and throughout his life it remained in manuscript and, as far as can be ascertained, never received a performance. The libretto by Delius himself is based on a fairy tale which, according to Philip Heseltine, is ' dramatically rather below the level of the conventional operatic text. Though the music was much praised by Grieg and Messager at the time of its composition, its performance was never seriously contemplated by the composer '.

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.
