Listeners will hear tonight how the work of a steeplejack is carried out.
J. Zammit, the man-aging director of a well-known firm of contractors, has had years of practical experience of the job.
He will tell how he came to take up the trade, and will describe the different methods used to demolish buildings. In recent years the trade has undergone many changes, some of which will be touched on in this broadcast. There will be thrills too, of course.
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.
