It is probably in July that the gardener realises how abundantly he is being rewarded for his services. The flower beds blaze with colour and it is possible to tell, always excepting some cataclysm of nature, how the fruit crop is likely to turn out. In view of these rewards and the apparent certainty of others to come, the gardener may be inclined to take things easy. This is a great mistake because blooms and fruit can only be brought to perfection by constant attention. July also is a holiday month for many people and unless arrangements are made for looking after the garden during these weeks of absence, the devoted garden lover may return to something more in the nature of a jungle than a garden.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
