  • briefly replaced by Empire History and Geography in 1927-28
  • permanently replaced by Exploration Earth in 1965
  • in the 1920s and early 1930s Travel Talks was a subject description rather than a definite series title, and programmes were broadcast under their sub-titles such as Southward with the Prince, Round the World, Peoples of the World of Their Homes, Peoples and Lands of the British Empire and Life and Work in the British Isles
  • some of the early talks in the 1920s were not arranged into a cohesive unit or themed at all, they were simply individual talks by different speakers each week, for example in spring 1927 the first talk was on The South Pole by Mr H.G. Ponting, and the second was on North-West Spain by Mrs Charlotte Mansfield
