The Victorian Kitchen Garden


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.
A series of 13 films in which a walled garden is restored and worked as it was
100 years ago.
Presented by Peter Thoday with Head Gardener Harry Dodson 10: September
September is the month that brings cook the widest choice of fruit and vegetables.
Although a time of plenty, little goes to waste. What is not eaten is stored for the winter months.
Harry is pleased with the old varieties, the purple podded pea, Couve Tronchuda the Portuguese cabbage, and Kohl Rabi , the German turnip. There is a fine crop of yellow tomatoes, the potatoes have only a trace of blight, and the cucumber glass has produced straight cucumbers. Peter visits Chatsworth to find succulent dessert grapes still being grown, the one crop Chilton has been unable to produce.
In the flower garden, while the full measure of colour remains, the fragrance of summer is gone.

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.
