From the show:
The Code of the Woosters, by PG Wodehouse – first serialised in Britain in the Daily Mail in 1938, beginning on this day
On this day: 14th September, 1752, Britain adopts the Gregorian calendar, leaping to September 14th from September 2nd. Years later, some were still campaigning for the return of their lost "eleven days".
On this day: 14th September, 1804, the ornithologist John Gould was born in Lyme Regis. He would identify "Darwin's finches" and was also a celebrated illustrator of ornithological books, particularly famous for his work on the birds of Australia.
