A series of talks about the countryside
Summer Birds
Eric Parker
The migrants begin to reach us from mid-March onwards, but most of our summer birds return in April. The order of arrival is nearly the same every year. It is remarkable how birds will return each year to the same haunt, even to the same bough. Why should late arrivals like the swifts leave early, in August, when there is still food for them in England ?
These are some of the things to be discussed in this new series (one of the three primarily for Discussion Groups). All the talks will be given by Eric Parker , Editor of the Field, and of the Lonsdale Library of Sports, Games, and Pastimes. He first broadcast in 1928, and gave continuous talks in ' Round the Countryside' to Schools from 1931 to 1935 -talks as delightful as any ever given on the air.

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.
