"Settling in New Zealand with Â£10"
Stanley Rudman, who is twenty-seven, was born at Swindon, educated in Worcestershire, and some ten years ago left for New Zealand, intending to settle there permanently. His experiences on the land and large sawmills will be described. He had been out there four and a half years when he had a very serious accident and was advised to return home to England by his doctor, who gave him only six months to live. That was five years ago.
' Fish and Fishing '
A programme for anyone who for pleasure or livelihood is interested in the gentle art of fishing
Arranged by RUTH ADAM and Produced by OWEN REED
This feature will represent the sport of angling in the Midlands. The Izaak Walton associations with Stafford and Dovedale will be referred to ; and the present popularity of the gentle art on Midland rivers will be reflected. Owen Reed is to produce, and the script is by Ruth Adam , who belongs to Nottingham, and has written three other features for Midland. The programme will be lightened by fishing stories of the Midlands.
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
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
