Interval Music
2.5 Science and Gardening © ' 'Planning and Making the Garden'
The talks this year will be shared between Dr. Keen, who will deal with the scientific side, and Mr. C. F. Lawrance , Horticultural Superintendent for the Northamptonshire County Council, who will deal with the general practice of gardening. The course will last until the end of June next year-that is, for three terms, the autumn term which began last week, and the spring and summer terms of 1938. This term listeners will hear seven talks about the soil, and three talks about plant growth. Today Mr. Lawrance, who is making his first appearance alone at the microphone, will speak about planning and making the garden, and will give advice on selecting the site, fencing and hedges, planning and cropping.

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.
