'The Lowlands and Industrial
Advice by George Blake
George-Blake, the Scottish novelist, has earned the right to speak on the industrial part of Scotland by his many fine stories set on Clydeside. Listeners may remember specially his successful novel, 'The Ship-builders'. They know him also as commentator on such occasions as the Coronation and the launch of the Queen Mary. In Scotland particularly his contributions to ' The Week in Scotland ' are awaited with interest by many.

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.
