: 'BACKS TO THE LAND'

by John Morgan , M.P., followed by ' The handyman among the bees' by Reginald Gamble
With bee-keeping playing such an important part in agriculture, Reginald Gamble is deeply concerned not only about the rise in prices of bee appliances but also about the shortage of timber, metal, and so forth required for their manufacture. It may well be that many a bee-keeper, old or new, can now neither afford nor procure the manufactured article. And that is where the handyman comes in, Necessity being the mother of invention, he uses his wits. He will utilise a length of timber here, a sheet of metal there, and Gamble in his talk will give him a hint or two about cutting them up and putting them together. Bee-keepers, like everybody else, are planning ahead, war or no war. The Newcastle and District Bee-keepers' Association, for instance, have already arranged a course of instruction for the spring, and they have just booked Gamble to give a lecture next February.

: Evelyn Laye in ' STAR TIME'

with the BBC Revue Orchestra conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
Script by Howard Thomas
Produced by Ronald Waldman
In a broadcast this summer listeners heard of Evelyn Laye 's evolution as an artist-how she played Principal Boy, how she rose to electric lights on the musical-comedy stage, and how she proved herself a first-rate artist in cabaret and revue. Many and varied as have been her successes, she will always be remembered for her lovely performance of Sara in Bitter Sioeet.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
