: ' OVER THE BORDER

Week-end notes for women gardeners, by Anna Scarlett and Barbara Tarver
Both Anna Scarlett and Barbara Tarver come to the microphone with their regular programmes as technical experts to lay their experience before the. ordinary listener. The programmes are primarily designed to give a Regional slant to gardeners' problems-in fact, what Barbara in London is doing today, Anna in Scotland will probably be doing tomorrow.
Anna Scarlett is sister to
Robert Scarlett , one of the most experienced market gardeners in Scotland, who has given many. a broadcast on his subject. Anna herself, who has had any amount of practical experience in her brother's garden, is attached to a domestic science college in Edinburgh.
Barbara Tarver has been studying her subject since 1933 at Studley College, Warwickshire, Swanley, Kent, and finally in Kew Gardens, London. She is at present in charge of the Ministry of Agriculture's demonstration allotment in Hyde Park, London.

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.
