: ' WHAT INDUSTRY OFFERS YOUR CHILD'

' Motor Cars, Aircraft, and Engineering'
A discussion between P. Sargant
Florence and W. H. Bunch
Engines of all kinds attract the average boy, and have done so ever since the days when Budge and Toddie in that Victorian classic
' Helen's Babies ' repeated at regular intervals that they ' wanted to see the wheels go round '. Since then the machine has been more and more in evidence so that for those with whorri the study of mechanics remains an absorbing passion after leaving school there is a larger choice of occupation than ever.
Professor Sargant Florence , who throughout this series holds a brief on behalf of the parent, will interview at the microphone W. H. Bunch, a mechanical engineer who has had over thirty-five years' experience of the management of an engineering works and in the design and use of the various machines and processes concerned. This includes those branches of the industry where mass-production methods are employed as well as those where such methods are not applicable and which may conveniently be included in the term ' general engineering '.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
