by John Morgan , M.P. followed by ' Poultry in the Garden ' by Alan Thompson
Alan Thompson , who gives yet another of his poultry talks after John Morgan 's foreword on growing food in general, kept pigedns when he was a schoolboy and looked after poultry in the holidays. He went straight from school to The Feathered World and has been its editor for the last eight years.
He has never given up poultry-keeping. On his forty acres in Sussex he has about 300 hens, and he feeds them himself before going to work every morning. His life experience he passes on to you.

Today we are to hear something of the war-lives of the F.A.N.Y.s and the A.T.S. ; then week by week for seven weeks other workers will be brought to the microphone: the Land Army, the factory workers, the W.R.N.S., and the W.A.A.F.s ; the nurses ; tht war wives, whether of men in the Forces or those who with their men are working stirrup-pumps.

: BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section B) leader Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
The Sleeping Beauty, one of Tchaikovsky's own favourite works, was commissioned by Vsevolozhsky, the Director of the Russian Imperial Theatres, to whom it is dedicated and who himself prefaced a scenario from Perrault's tale. Tchaikovsky
' worked at the score with pleasure, and the' whole three-act ballet was composed — not orchestrated, of course-in little more than a month. The Sleeping Beauty was produced at St. Petersburg in January, 1890. The music shows Tchaikovsky at vs best. He was probably the createst of all composers of ballet niusic.

: 'MOWGLI'S BROTHERS'

Adapted from Rudyard Kipling 's Jungle Stories and produced by Maurice Brown
The years go by, but ' The Jungle Book ' still retains its first popularity with readers of all ages. The adventures of Mowgli, the boy who was fostered by the wolves and who learned to call every animal of the jungle by the name of brother, have the eternal attraction of simplicity. Later imitations, such as the notorious Tarzan, only throw into higher relief the simple charm of Mowgli.
Maurice Brown, who adapted the ' Just-So Stories' of Kipling so admirably, should prove himself to be equally at home with Tabagui the jackal, Bagheera the panther, and the tiger Shere Khan-to say nothing of the Bandar Log !

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.
