MR. CHARLES W. J. UNWIN concludes his series of four specialized talks on gardening matters with some advice on the growing of Dahlias. The modern cult of the Dahlia has resulted in developments so surprising that it is hard to recognize in some of the shaggy species that ornament our gardens the trim, formal flower that was their 'ancestor.' In response to a considerable demand, raisers have concentrated on producing types which are free-flowering, which carry their blooms well above the foliage on long, stiff stems, and which have special value as interior decoration.

DOIELDIEU was so modest about his own work that. if the story- be true. lie used to take the completed sections of his early Opera, The Caliph of Bagdad, to the Conservatoire in Paris where he was a professor, to ask his pupils for their verdict on the music. If they did not like it, he referred it to the great Mehul. Ho need have been in no doubt about the attractive qualities of his work ; nearly all his light-hearted and melodious operas won immediate success, and many of them held the stage for generations after his own day.
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.
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

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.
