: 'IN BRITAIN NOW'

Talks from the English counties

: FARMING TODAY

' Cattle at the Cross-Roads ' : fortnightly series of discussions on cattle-breeding. 1—'What do we want ? ' W. S. Mansfield , Director of the Cambridge University Farm, tries to answer the question, with the help of C. E. Harvey of Thorpe and Hugh Wylie of Rush Court
This series of discussions aims at elucidating problems of great urgency for the whole future of British animal husbandry. Three' years' intensive work has effected great improvements, but many farmers still have no long-term policy for their livestock.
W. J". Mansfield, with representative speakers from all over Britain, will attempt to -investigate the whole position. The talks, which have been designed to meet the needs of Farmers' Discussion Groups in the winter evenings, and will doubtless appeal also to Young Farmers' Clubs, aim at concentrating the attention of the farming community on the problems to be solved. They will have served their purpose if they broaden the perspective of discussion, and present the future of British cattle-breeding as a long-term biological problem involving not one but all departments of agricultural economy.

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.

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