JOHN MORGAN visits the Market Special
(From Bristol)
FOR some little time Market Special has been a feature of the West Regional programmes, and this interesting item which features the conversation of farmers sitting round the dinner table at an inn after the special dinner on market day is to be reviewed this evening with three important innovations.
First, Market Special is to be relayed for the first time to National listeners; secondly, John Morgan himself is to be there ; and, thirdly, it is on the opening day of the Bath and West Show which is held this year at Oxford. Thus listeners over a wide area are to hear something about the third biggest show in the country.
Mr. Morgan intends to get the opinions of the farmers present on the value of shows from an agricultural point of view. He is all for .their being run for utility rather than for fancy. It is not the most handsome cow that matters, but the one that gives the most and the best quality milk. The modem-day tendency of shows is in this direction, and classes are scheduled for handicrafts, machines, and so forth, and demonstrations of all sorts of processes and experiments are given.

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.
