The speakers in this series of talks are drawn from all walks of life, and their qualifications for speaking are the undoubted interest which they have shown in Wales and the Welsh people, and their association with movements in Wales. They select their own aspects of Welsh life for comment, and are free to speak from a wholly personal standpoint.
Henry Higgins , the fourth speaker in this series, is well known in North Wales as an archaeologist and public man. He will speak this evening of the character of the Welsh, and his talk will include some rather candid criticisms. His advice to English settlers in Wales is that they should learn the Welsh language, because in not doing so they miss a great deal. Everyone can appreciate the beauty of the Welsh countryside, but if they really want to enjoy life in Wales to the fullest extent, they must learn the language and get to know the people.

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.
