: ' IN AND OUT OF ALBANIA'

H. S. Marchant
The speaker claims to be the only man who has ever entered Albania on foot carrying a couple of hip-baths. An amusing frontier incident resulted in this introduction of H. S. Marchant 's to that curious little country that may best be located by the average man, when described as the ' second small country on the right going up the Adriatic '.
Albania is one of Europe's most fascinating backwaters, a land in which until only ten years or so ago, the visitor might not travel without fear of brigands, but which, under the leadership of its far-sighted King Zog, is being rapidly changed.
During the eleven years of his reign, Zog has disarmed the peasants, abolished the veil for Mohammedan women, made blood feuds illegal, and created an extremely up-to-date royal city in his capital Tirana. Even so, Albania remains a primitive and picturesque land, a land with few roads, no railways,, and a population which, in the words of one of its natives, is composed of ' Mohammedans, orthodox Catholics, Roman Catholics-and those who have been to America '.

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.
