: BACKS TO THE LAND

followed by a talk on Christmas chickens and turkeys by Alan Thompson and a wholesaler
The time has come to think about roast chickens for Christmas, if we can get them, or about turkeys, if we can afford them. So, for his talk today, Alan Thompson is bringing a wholesaler to the microphone, and they will discuss prices that are likely to be ruling round about Christmas-time. Housewives will also get a few hints about choosing table poultry, and those of us who have bred a few chickens in our backyards will be interested to hear the conclusions of these experts about the possibility of rearing spring cockerels on household scraps.

: 'These Men Were Free' BYRON

A reconstruction from the original sources of Byron's last journey to Greece in 1823, with its effect on the liberation of the Greek people
Produced by Stephen Potter
Lord Byron was born in 1788 on the eve of the French Revolution. During his youth he readily assimilated the new ideals of freedom and universal brotherhood, which permeated the thought of every country after the revolution and during the Napoleonic wars. When the Greeks began their struggle for independence he went to their assistance, and died at Missolonghi in 1824.

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.
