'Public Holidays'
HELEN SIMPSON
Fashions in holidays, traced through English history, serve as an index to many great social changes. First the Church dictated days of recreation, and influenced entertainment. Then the State took control, cut down the number of non-workingi days by about a third, and made its own rules for holiday behaviour. As England grew more civilised ideas of pleasure changed ; but it is interesting to see how, despite his treacherous climate, the Englishman has always chosen, when he could, to spend his leisure in the open air.

' Insect Pests'
B. A. KEEN , D.Sc., F.R.S.
When we consider the number and variety of insects that feed on vegetation, we may well be surprised that our crops ever manage to reach maturity. As a rule, insects do not feed indiscriminately, for each species is found on only a few different kinds of plant, and feeds on some special part of the plant. Thus, the aphis of broad beans sucks the plant juices ; leather-jackets (the grub of the daddy-long-legs) eat plant roots ; the caterpillar of the wood leopard moth bores into the shoots of trees ; the larva; of the apple sawfly bore into the sides of the apple and eat out a large cavity as the fruit grows ; the caterpillar of the magpie moth destroys the leaves of currant and gooseberry bushes and plum trees. Short accounts of the life history of typical insect pests will be given, and attention will be drawn to the stage in their life history at which they attack plants.

Ach Lieb ', ich muss nun scheiden
Wiegenliedchen Wozu noch, Madchen Blauer Sommer Strauss has himself explained, m a highly interesting letter, his methods of song writing. 'For some time,' he wrote, ' I will have no impulse to compose at all. Then one evening I will be turning the leaves of a volume of poetry and a poem will strike my eye. I read it through ; it agrees with the mood I am in ; and at once the appropriate music is fitted to it. I am in a musical frame of mind, and all I want is the right poetic vessel into which to pour my ideas. If good luck throws this in my way, a satisfactory song results.'

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.
