: Adventure in Scotland-3

' An Arctic journey
Within recent years city dwellers have discovered many unexpected facts about Scotland's wild, open spaces. Accounts of climbing tragedies in the Cairngorms have made them realise that snow blizzards of Arctic severity and winds of hurricane force are common in the hills and mountains. John Nimlin 's journey from Rowardennan to Aberfoyle contains as much adventure in wild, stormy conditions as anyone could wish. Toiling and slipping, he struggled over steep slopes, and now and then was plunged into snow waist-deep.
His companion, who wore shorts, had his knees badly torn by the surface crust of snow which, though insufficient to bear their weight was sharp enough to cut. After fighting for twenty-one hours, they reached Aberfoyle at four in the morning, desperately in need of sleep and ready to lie down in their tracks.

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.
