: ' RETURN TO WHALING '

A survey of the past and a review of the present whale fishery
This season's whale fishery has a very novel and important feature : the re-entry of British seamen. We shall salute them with traditional songs and then look back to the days when the industry was carried on from open boats, when ships would go North seasonally or operate in tropical waters for sometimes three years on end. We shall talk of 'scrimshandering' and the recreations of these old sailors. Nor shall we forget the noble family of whales and their idiosyncrasies.
And then you will hear of the modern fishery, which these English-men have gone out to join, of its migration to Antarctic waters, of factory ships, of an industry now highly organised. Once more Hull has gone a-whaling. The principal contributors to this programme will be N. A. Mackintosh , who is Director of Research to the Discovery Investigations, and J. 0. Borley, the fisheries adviser to the Colonial
Office.

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.

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.
