: 'THE KITCHEN FRONT'

A talk about what to eat and how to cook it, by Freddie Grisewood
It has always been the policy of those' sponsoring these programmes -both Janet Quigley of the BBC and the Ministry of Food—to have radio personalities broadcasting the talks rather than professional cooks. And so we have had, among others, Jeanne de Casalis , S. P. B. Mais , and Janet Chance , advising listeners on the Kitchen Front.
And now Freddie Grisewood-Iong wanted, but unobtainable because of his duties in the Empire programmes -is to talk every morning this week. Listeners have heard his broadcasts again and again with C. H. Middle-ton. and know the interest he takes in the garden he has made for himself in Surrey. To grow your own food is not a long step from cooking your own food.

: CYRIL SMITH

plays
Brahms's piano sonata in F minor,
Op. 5 (in five movements)
Cyril Smith 's first London recital in 1932 established his reputation, and since then he has appeared at most of the important concerts and festivals in this country. He was appointed Professor of Pianoforte at the Royal College of Music at the age of twenty-five.
Cyril Smith 's hobbies are golf, photography, and his garden. It takes many hours' work to be a successful pianist and teacher and the pianos (three of them) in Cyril Smith 's house are overworked from time to time, as his wife, Phyllis Sellick , is also a concert pianist.

: 'TAKING STOCK'

The British Commonwealth
A discussion between H. V. Hodson and Collin Brooks
What has been the part played in the war by the self-governing dominions, by India, and by the dependencies ? Does their almost complete unanimity (Eire alone is neutral) tiold promise as a nucleus for collective security in the future ? Can we learn anything from the Empire at war (and from the problems of the Dutch, French, and Belgian colonies) which will help to solve problems of post-war administration ?

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
