A topical talk by JOHN REDMAN
John Redman , who is a native of Cardiff and has written many descriptive articles about the Welsh countryside, will tell in his talk of his experiences on the river Wye, which he describes as a capricious river providing enough thrills for even experienced local watermen. They say that it takes three years to ' learn the river ', but the tidal stretch of the Wye may take a lifetime. One day when two canoeists in a hurry disregarded all warnings of the boatmen at Tintern and decided to 'shoot the rapids ' between Tintem and Chepstow at ebb tide-the one time when the trip should not be attempted-they experienced enough danger in the space of a few hours. In spite of warnings they both lived to tell the tale, and John Redman , who was one of them, will tell about the adventure tonight.

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

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.
