: Farmhouse Cookery

Mrs. ARTHUR WEBB
Hidden away in the farmhouses of Britain are wonderful recipes, and in spite of ' progress ', traditional dishes still exist if they can only be found. And so that most popular of cookery broadcasters, Mrs. Arthur Webb , who has sold close on 160,000 copies of her talks in pamphlet form, is to go round the farms of Britain on a voyage of discovery.
Junkets in Devon, saffron cake in Cornwall, tripe in Cheshire, Eccles cakes in Cumberland, pork and onion dumplins in Norfolk and Suffolkshe will track down the farms in which they are made and wheedle the farmer's wife into giving her the recipe.
Mrs. Webb is herself a farmer's daughter, worked for the Board of Agriculture during the war, and now writes for the Dairy Farmer. She has been reconnoitring Yorkshire this last week, and this morning she will come to the microphone and describe a typical farmwife of the country, something of the country round and the farmhouse itself-to say nothing of the dish she serves up for great occasions.

: 'Freedom'—

Sir ERNEST J. P. BENN , Bart., C.B.E.
In this series, which commences this evening, thirteen speakers have been asked to give their ideas of those aspects of freedom which seem to them characteristically British in virtue of the particular outlook and experience of each.
It is not a political series in the sense of party politics, but political views will naturally be represented, as will the Church, the Law, Industry, Letters, and so forth, and a distinguished foreigner now residing in England is to be included in the list.
This evening Sir Ernest Benn , the well-known publisher, is to open the series. As a man who is both individualist and capitalist, man of letters as well as business man, President of the East End Hostels as well as President of the British Export Society, Chairman of a number of companies as well as being both an author and publisher, his views should be interesting.

Italian Ballet Music
Generally speaking, ballet has played a less important part in Italian than in French opera. But tonight's programme gives ample proof that this is due to the taste of the Italian public, not to any lack of flair on the part of Italian composers.
The programme might equally well be described as ' An Hour of Little Known Music by Well-Known Composers '. To the average listener Ponchielli is as completely a ' one-opera composer ' as Mascagni. But here, for once, La Gioconda is replaced by the unknown Prodigal Son, Cavalleria Rusticana by the rarely heard Iris. Even Puccini is represented by excerpts from two of his least familiar operas : Le Villi, his earliest work for the stage, and Manon, which, after heroically struggling for some time with Massenet's Marion, is now nearly as dead as Aubcr's. As this very charming Minuet shows, it deserves resurrection.

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.
