'TOWARDS NATIONAL HEALTH'

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
' Food and Fitness '
' Exercise, Why and How '
Major A. H. Gem
The first part of this series dealt mainly with nutrition. Last week Dr. Carnwath linked it to the talks that are to follow by describing the relationship of physical culture to nutrition, and tonight Major Gem is to give the first of the talks on physical culture-or, in other words, exercise. He will explain why and how we should take exercise, especially today, when so many of us do so little walking. Far too many British men and women regard exercise with the same air of boredom as getting up in the morning, and this is a pity. Ten minutes' physical culture a day makes all the difference.

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.
