Walking by Night
W. KERSLEY HOLMES
Last week Mr. Alastair Borthwick told listeners how it might be possible to starve in Scotland even if one had plenty of money in one's pocket. Tonight Mr. Kersley Holmes deals with a topic which is rather more suggestive of adventure. There are thousands of square miles in Scotland which are forbidding enough in daylight, and in darkness might very well get the traveller as much adventure as he will want for the rest of his life if he is not completely familiar with the way and what to expect. Mr. Holmes spends a great deal of his time walking, and knows the countryside as few other people do. If he can find real adventure, there is ample opportunity for less energetic listeners to get all the thrills they want.
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
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.
