: 'GOATS'

Mrs. B...S. P. Abbey
In December last, Mrs. Abbey, of Roydon, Essex, owner of one of the premier herds of goats in England, and author of a useful text-book on goats, gave valuable advice in this broadcast series, which is planned to help the ' grow more food' campaign.
There are many good reasons for keeping goats, as she explained : they are easy to manage and milk ; they eat less and take up less room than cows ; and, most important of all, they are free of the restrictions of the Milk Marketing Board. You may sell the milk as you like.
Mrs. Abbey stressed the care goats need, discussed their housing and feeding, and compared different breeds. Today she will explore the subject further.

by W. W. Jacobs
Episode 2: 'Watch-Dogs'
Adapted for radio and produced by Douglas Cleverdon
Cast
Here is another yarn about the simple-hearted, as well as the not so simple-hearted, rustics of Claybury, one of a series that has always vied in popularity with the same author's stories of the Night Watchman.
Once again Bob Pretty uses his cunning to score off his neighbours. This time his artfulness is concentrated on the winning of a gold watch offered as a reward for kindness to animals.

The songs of Herbert and Eleanor Farjeon with Nora Gruhn
Charlotte Leigh
Michael Cole
Edward Cooper
The BBC Theatre Chorus (trained by Charles Groves)
The BBC Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder
The programme presented and conducted by Mark H. Lubbock
In this programme you are to hear songs from various Farjeon productions, including The Little Revue, Nine Sharp, An Elephant in Arcady, and The Two Bouquets.
Herbert and Eleanor Farjeon are brother and sister, members of a family that has given much to the arts. They have collaborated in works for both stage and radio, and are known both separately and together to readers of the RADIO TIMES, many of whom will remember the number of Masques which they have contributed to this journal.
Together the Farjeons have given much to the London theatre. Among their joint successes have been The Two Bouquets and An Elephant in Arcady. Herbert Farjeon has himself given London some of its wittiest revues-Nine Sharp and the two editions of the Little Revue. His sister has published a great number of children's verses.

: GRIEG

Sonata for cello and piano, in A minor, Op. 36 played by Antoni Sala (cello)
Gerald Moore (piano)
Grieg wrote only one sonata for cello and piano, and dedicated it to his deceased brother, whose thoughtful and passionate moods the music is intended to portray. It was written when Grieg was forty-two, and was published in 1885. It is a dramatic work in three movements, beautifully written for both instruments.

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.
