Alan Thompson
Alan Thompson, who went straight from school to The Feathered World and who has been for more than eight years its editor, attends to his poultry - chiefly Light Sussex - every morning before starting for business.
This afternoon he will discuss the problems of feeding chicks at the present time and of fattening cockerels on kitchen waste. And he will have something to say about the use to which potatoes and grass can be put by the poultry-keeper.

(Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Overture: Beatrice and Benedict
Berhoz
Fantasy-overture: Romeo and Juliet
Tchaikovsky
Although Tchaikovsky was not in sympathy with the ideals of the Russian nationalists, he became very friendly with Balakirev. During a visit to Moscow, Balakirev suggested to him that Shakespeare's Borneo and Juliet would be an ideal subject for symphonic treatment. Tchaikovsky was enthusiastic over the idea, and soon after his return home he began to work out the music. A lively correspondence ensued between the two composers, and Balakirev made many suggestions, including the various incidents in the drama to be treated and the keys to be adopted in the music.

This revue, specially written by Diana Morgan of Gate Theatre fame, was origina))y broadcast as a half-hour show at the beginning of March.

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.
