: FARMING TODAY

A New Approach to the Wireworm Problem
Talk by E. Holmes , Ph.D.
Until recent years no direct attack has been possible on the wirewonn-one of the arable farmer's main problems. To overcome ravages by this pest the farmer has had to rely on cultural methods and the selection of resistant crops, but recently chemical methods of preventing wireworm damage have been evolved in this country. Dr. Holmes, who is prominently connected with research in this field, describes these advances and, in particular, how methods have been found of reducing the high costs of treating land by chemical methods.

A weekly programme about work in the world of science
Lab. on Wheels
An account of a visit with a Mobile Acoustic Laboratory by Peter Parkin and William Allan
The mobile laboratory belonging to the Building Research Station goes out to study noise and to advise architects on what acoustic problems they will have to solve on a particular site. For example, it was used to study the noise of trains crossing Hungerford Bridge before the L.C.C. concert hall on the South Bank site was designed. The ' Science Survey ' visit is to a block of flats at Walthamstow to check on the success of a novel design.

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.

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.
