: Watching Birds-2

' Consider the Little Owl'
TOM H. HARRISSON
Today Tom Harrisson , in his second talk on birds, is to defend a bird that has been almost universally condemned for killing young birds, pheasant chicks in particular.
Since the Little Owl was introduced and established in Kent and Northants in the seventies and eighties, it has spread rapidly, even to Wales and to the north of England. Until last year it was protected in all but six counties ; now it is not protected at all.
This year the newly founded British
Trust for Ornithology is to hold a court of .inquiry, as it were, into the habits of the Little Owl. Is it in fact such a sinner as is made out ?
Tom Harrisson believes that it is very beneficial to the farmer and in his talk this evening he will tell listeners how they can co-operate in getting the Little Owl a fair trial in England.

: Book Talk

General Sir IAN HAMILTON , G.C.B.,
G.C.M.G., C.B.E.
Here is the first talk in a series of book talks from a new angle. The idea is to review not new, but recent books. So many books are published these days that even good ones may get overlooked or forgotten. One important change is that the books are not necessarily to be recommended by the professional critic or author ; and in particular, speakers will remember those who depend on the public libraries and the twopenny libraries now so rapidly increasing in the country.
What does Sir Ian Hamilton think about books ? This evening he is to prepare the way for later speakers in the series who are to give suggestions for book lists ; and he will try to coax listeners into a new frame of mind about books and tempt some of them to buy a few.
The following advice is sterling, but comes perhaps surprisingly from a man of action and the best-known hero of the Dardanelles : ' If you are lucky and have one small room of your own, and if you have in it a few chosen books of your very own, then you are rich.'

: Behind the Scenes in Nature—I

The Wheel of Life
JAMES RITCHIE , D.Sc.
(Regius Professor of Natural History in the University of Aberdeen)
This is the first talk in a new series by Professor James Ritchie , and he is to show how animals and plants live. All animals, ultimately, obtain their food from plants, and plants build up the stuffs which all animals devour by making use of the energy radiated by the sun. He pictures living matter as a mill-wheel kept in constant circulation by the stream of light from the sun. Professor Ritchie is to give ten talks in this series for Discussion Groups, and a list of useful books to read while the series goes on was given in the Talks Supplement in The Listener for April i.

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.
