H. A. Wallace
The speaker today, H. A. Wallace , has broadcast before on bird-watching, and has also contributed to a discussion on marketing. Born in the most northerly parish in Scotland-Dunnett-he spent several years of his life in the Shetlands. He was markets superintendent at Derby for about thirty years, and it was only a short time ago that he retired.
Most of Mr. Wallace's winter bird-watching is done in a ' hide ' in a Nottinghamshire wood. In the summer he usually goes to Shetland, to one of the Pembrokeshire islands, or to an island off the Irish Coast. Bird-watching, indeed, is his favourite hobby ; he has been responsible for many lantern lectures on the subject.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

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.
