: FARMING TODAY

' An extra sack to the acre' by Professor J. A. Scott Watson
The Minister of Agriculture has said that where we have thought in terms of six or eight sacks to the acre we should now aim at eight or ten on even more. Today Professor Scott Watson is going to talk about spring cultivations and manurial dressings for spring crops, which will ensure this increase of yield. Professor Scott Watson has had practical experience of arable cropping on the St... John's College Farm at Long Wittenham, in Oxfordshire.

(Section B)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult ORCHESTRA
Stanford's choral ballad ' Phaudrig Crohoore ' was first produced at the Norwich Festival in 1896. The ballad is an Irish legend telling of Phaudrig Crohoore (or .Patrick Connor), 'a broth of a boy', six foot eight, and his love for Kathleen O'Brien. Phaudrig had a rival, Michael O'Hanlon, who was favoured by Kathleen's father, and a marriage was arranged between Michael and Kathleen. On the wedding day when the guests were assembled and the ceremony was about to begin, Phaudrig strode in and went straight to Kathleen asking her if it was by her own free choice that she was marrying Michael, Her tearful eye and pale cheek told him the truth -that her heart was his. Then said Phaudrig: She's mine, in spite of you all! ' O'Hanlon challenged him to fight but with one blow Phaudrig struck him dead. Then, seizing Kathleen in his arms, he leaped on his horse and galloped away before the amazed guests could stop him.
The tale ends there, but in an epilogue the chorus sings a final stanza telling how Phaudrig fell in battle.

: BRAHMS TRIOS—5

Trio in A minor, Op. 114, for clarinet, cello, and piano played by Stephen Waters (clarinet); Antonia Butler (cello) ; Kathleen Markwell
(piano)
Brahms wrote his Trio for clarinet, cello, and piano, like his Clarinet Quintet and clarinet sonatas, for the clarinettist, Miihlfeld, of von Billow's famous Meiningen Orchestra.
Though rarely heard, it is a fine work in the composer's later compressed style. It is said that Brahms intended the opening theme for that of a fifth symphony.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
