' Feeding Birds in Winter '
This afternoon C. C. Gaddum is to deal with the various ways of feeding the different kinds of common birds met with in the garden, and he will show how easy it is to tame them at this time of year when their natural food is scarce. He will explain how a simple bird table can be made even by the most inexperienced amateur, and describe some simple gadgets for feeding blue tits.
Teachers will find it helpful to have pictures handy of a robin, a blue tit, a great tit, and a wood-pecker.

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.
