Creatures of the House
C. R. STONOR
C. R. Stonor, well-known naturalist, will give two Nature Study talks to schools this term, of which this afternoon's is the first. He is going to tell about some of the small creatures that inhabit houses, and explain why some of them are useful and some very much the reverse.
Listeners will hear about the habits of the death-watch beetle and the harm it does; about the house spider, which is really a useful little creature and not one to be afraid of ; about the cockroach, the harmful house mouse, and that most curious of house-dwelling insects, the cricket.

' The King and the Chancellor'
Henry VIII and Sir Thomas More
AUDREY BAKER
The object of this broadcast is to tell the story of Sir Thomas More , the well-known Renaissance scholar, and of his patron Henry VIII , showing their mutual love of learning and describing their attitude towards the Church.
There will be three scenes in the broadcast ; the first showing the king and the More family in Chelsea ; the second depicting the quarrel as a result of which Sir Thomas was sent to the Tower ; and the third showing the scene on the scaffold where More met his end.
The story you will hear is supposed to be told to you by one William Roper , who wrote a life of Sir Thomas More , who was his father-in-law.

: PUBLIC FUTILITIES

being a weekly account of the proceedings of the Rural District Council of Nether Backwash, presided over by none other than
Mr. Muddlecombe, J.P., in other words. Robb Wilton minuted by Max Kester and Anthony Hall
Most listeners will he glad to welcome back to the microphone that irresponsible but delightful figure, Mr. Muddlecombe. We understand that the public affairs of Nether Backwash are about to enter a period of characteristic dilly-dally and confusion, to which, as all who are familiar with Mr. Muddlecombe, J.P., may guess, the worthy magistrate will contribute in his own inimitable way.
Mr. Muddlecombe returns to the microphone after an absence of almost exactly a year.

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.
