: Launch of the new Aircraft Carrier H.M.S. ' ILLUSTRIOUS'

by Lady Henderson with a description of the scene by Thomas Woodrooffe from Vickers-Armstrong's Naval Yard, Barrow-in-Furness
When the new aircraft carrier, H.M.S. Illustrious, slides down the launching ' ways ' this morning hundreds of Barrow folk will be witnessing the launch of the biggest ship ever built in Vickers Armstrong's naval yard at Barrow-in-Furness.
Thomas Woodrooffe will be actually on board the Illustrious as she takes the water, and may be relied upon to bring a word-picture both of what a launch looks like and of what it feels like.

: THE CITY OF LONDON

' What the City means to you '
Alan Ivimey
This is the first of a new series in which the speaker is going to discuss in popular vein the significance to the ordinary citizen of the great ' City '.
Today's talk will be introductory in character, and will outline the four fundamental functions of the City. These arc, in brief-the provision of mechanism by which money payments may be safely and quickly made without the use of actual notes or coin ; the provision of money that enables foodstuffs and raw materials to be produced and to undergo manufacturing processes until they are sold as finished articles ; the collection and investment of the country's savings ; and the provision of the vast foreign exchange market in which the currencies of various countries can he interchanged.

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.
