ONE of the most interesting of the birds which frequent our countryside is the partridge.
There are two varieties common in this country
-the grey a'nd ths red-legged. The latter was introduced into England by a British peer-the Marquis of Hertford—in the 18th century. As a table delicacy the partridge is unique and its habits are well worthy of study by the Nature lover. At this time of the year, too, the bird is causing great excitement in the hearts of countless sportsmen-for partridge-shooting, begins in September ! Nature lovers, epicures and sportsmen, therefore, should all make a point of hearing Mr. W. Percival Westell 's interesting and topical talk this evening.
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.
