G. F. Brough went to sea at the age of fourteen feeling that his life's ambition was realised, but after three journeys round the Horn he became disillusioned, and with a fellow apprentice he decided to run away and try his luck in America. The Captain discovered their plan and locked the boys up, but they managed to break through the sky-light and drop on to the wharf. It was one thing to be free ; it was another thing to be without money and without a job. Mr. Brough will tell listeners of his subsequent strange adventures, which included a trip of 7,000 miles in a fishing vessel off the coast of Siberia.

The first of a series of six talks by J. M. N. JEFFRIES
J. M. N. Jeffries is the well-known War Correspondent whose book 'Front Everywhere' has recently been published. Apart from his experiences in Belgium, France, Egypt, and the Balkans, described in the book, he has toured the country many times for newspapers, and he has chosen the title ' Happening Along ' so as to give himself latitude to tell of the people he met and the history of the places he visited.

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.
