'The Wise Penny'


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.
THIS is the second of two talks on home-made bread, and while the subject of Emelie Waller 's last broadcast may be said to have been utility, it is fancy bread that she is to discuss this morning.
The milk loaf so delicious for tea ; the currant loaf loved by children and grown-ups alike. Then rolls come into the category, and what can be nicer than hot rolls for breakfast ? Then would you like to know how to make a honey-loaf, or Yorkshire tea cakes out of Yorkshire ? . '
That is the best of a new enterprise.
It is onlv making a start that is difficult. From a cottage loaf to croissants, and on to something even more ambitious. For housewives can cook as well as a chef if they want to, and they will soon be in a position to prove that they can, if they will follow these talks, put precepts into practice, and make a beginning.
Mrs. Waller has given these and other recipes in her pamphlet The
Wise Penny II ' (obtainable from
Broadcasting House or any B.B.C. offices on receipt of 3d. in stamps, or for 2d. on personal application), and will give further details and cautions in her talk. Have this pamphlet by you while listening to the talks.

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.
