' A Traveller's Guide
Through France'
Ralph de Rohan talks about this book, published in 1820 Ralph de Rohan recently consulted this book when he was planning a journey through France. He found that it gave information about travelling in a post-chaise, hints about where to change horses advice on matters of exchange and food, and some pleasing judgments on the character of the people. He talks about the book and the picture it gives of travelling in leisured, spacious days when a trip to the interior of France could scarcely be accomplished under a month or six weeks.

5.25 'Cowleaze Farm' by Ralph Whitlock
' To the Harvest Field '
Produced by Mollie Austin
Our visit to Cowleaze Farm on this occasion finishes up in the harvest field, but it takes us some time to get there. Such small matters as a picnic tea, a wasp's nest, and a visit to the blacksmith cause a certain amount of delay, aggravated by Towser who, of course, does aU the wrong things. However we get there just before the last grain is cut.

: NEW FRONTIERS IN SCIENCE

Six talks about the present-day growth of science
4-The Chemistry of Life by Philip D.sc Eggleton , , Reader in Physiology in the University of Edinburgh
Dr. Eggleton explains that while, roughly speaking. living cells are built up from protein, they only work if the protein is assisted by substances which have been variously called hormones, vitamins, and so on. He tries to show that there may be an underlying principle behind these apparently different things.

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.
