' Your Games and Mine', by M. HOMAYUN
Today you are going to hear about a very romantic country called Afghanistan in which children's games are in many ways different from ours. The country where little girls have real feasts and weddings for their dolls, and little boys all have a donkey in order to learn to ride a horse. Mr. M. Homayun is an Afghan and a student of medicine in the University of Edinburgh. We believe he is the first Afghan to study for this profession in a British University...

Our reviews of Scottish letters have been in abeyance for some time, but it is now proposed to include one in the programmes once a month. The books to be reviewed will include those dealing with history, biography, travel, topography, sport, drama, and poetry. It is heartening to hear that so many books in these departments are being written as to warrant a monthly review. In the past it was thought sufficient to deal with Scottish books four times a year. Dr. W. Mackay Mackenzie is a well-known Scottish scholar and published the works of William Dunbar a short time ago.

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.
