'Winter Pitfalls'
R. Gamble
In his broadcast today Reginald Gamble will be coming alone to the microphone to discuss winter pitfalls and the vital necessity of bringing

taken he fears that losses will be heavy—even up to fifty per cent. for the stocks have come through one of the poorest of seasons.
Gamble's book, 'Bee-Keeping', which many listeners have been anxious to hear about, has just been published by the National
Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs, with companion books, 'The
Farm' and 'Rabbit-Keeping'. They are obtainable from the Federation at Oaklings, Canons Place, Radlett, Herts, price 6d., or 8d. post free, while editions at 1s are published by Longmans Green. Books on other

' Blue Peter-What He Did and What He Would Have Done'
Jack Jarvis and Wilfrid Taylor
This spring a wonder three-year-old called Blue Peter prophetically won the Blue Riband Stakes over the Epsom mile, and he was whispered as a wonder horse. His adherents were delighted when he went on to win the first of the classics-the Two Thousand Guineas
-at Newmarket. When he confounded his detractors-not that there were many—by winning the Derby, he was the means of creating three records. E. Smith the jockey, Jack Jarvis the trainer, and Lord Rosebery the owner, won their first Derby (although Lord Rosebery's father had won the Derby three times).
It is a triumph for this series to have succeeded in bringing
Jack Jarvis to the microphone today to discuss a horse from his own stable that may have been the horse of the century, but might have been beaten in the St. Leger, if it had been run, by the Frenchman, Pharis II, winner of the Grand Prix. Jack Jarvis will discuss the pros and cons with the professional race reader, Wilfrid Taylor , who has assisted Thomas Woodrooffe in all his big race commentaries. r

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
