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.
Nature Study
Round the Countryside
3—'Distribution of Seeds'
C. C. GADDUM
This afternoon Mr. C. C. Gaddum is to tell listeners all about seeds. He will say why Nature has thought it wise to scatter them and then how they are scattered ; by the wind, by animals, by mechanical means. Those blown by the wind are especially adapted for flight : for instance, the wings of the sycamore and the parachute of the dandelion.
Again, most of the edible fruits are scattered by birds, while the goose grass and burdock are carried here and there on the coats of animals. As for mechanical means, a striking example is the common gorse, front which the seeds are catapulted.
Teachers will find it useful to have ready either specimens or drawings of the following : a sycamore seed, a dandelion clock, a gorse pod, and goose grass showing seeds.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
