' Shrubs '
D. Harris and F. G. Cousins
A discussion on the lay-out and growing of shrubs for private and public gardens
F. G. Cousins was formerly a member of the staff of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. He lives at Tor-quay, where he is regarded as one of the best authorities in the West
Country on the culture of shrubs.
Many gardening talks are topical, but on this occasion a long view will be taken. Hints will be given to those who wish to have decorative material for the home next winter, such as berried cuttings. The spring offers a good opportunity to plant many evergreens, and a word will also be said about the spring treatment of shrub hedges.

A short story by Evelyn Waugh read by the author.
Evelyn Waugh, who has now been living in the West Country for some time, is one of the few writers today who can write good satirical fiction in both short-story and novel form. 'Decline and Fall', 'Vile Bodies', 'Black Mischief', and 'Handful of Dust' are classics of their kind. In 1936 his 'Edmund Campion', a biography, was awarded the Hawthornden Prize.
Recently he took part in the series of discussions entitled 'Readers and Reading'.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
