: MY BROTHER JONATHAN'

.by Francis Brett Young
Adapted for broadcasting by Olivia Manning
9—' Equality of Sacrifice '
Produced by William Hughes
In the years immediately preceding 1914, Jonathan Dakers has successfully overcome his difficulties in improving the medical services in the Black Country town of Wednesford. With the coming of the war his duties increase when his brother Harold and his rival, Dr. Craig, enlist for military service.
Edie Martyn , the girl whom Jonathan loves, returns to England, from Germany, but it is obvious that she does not return his affection. Old Dr. Hammond, who has retired from partnership with Jonathan, is a very sick man and Jonathan has been called in to see him.

4—' A Visit to the Zoo '
This week the burning question of Ginnie's mumps is to be finally settled. Has she got them, or hasn't she? So far, apart from Jane, only Mrs. Gage is in the secret, and a tower of strength she is. But the matter has become, if possible, even more urgent, because Mrs. Bell has written to Sadler's Wells for an audition for both Jane and Angus, and the whole scheme will be ruined if they have to be in quarantine. On top of this, two cousins of the children are coming up to London with their mother and father, and a visit to the Zoo has been planned.

: WORLD POPULATION AND WORLD FOOD SUPPLIES

by Sir John Russell , O.B.E., F.R.S.
A short version, specially recorded, of the Presidential Address to the British Association
On one occasion, at least, the world was startled by what was said by the President in the address that traditionally opens the annual meeting of the British Association. That was in 1898, when Sir William Crookes declared that hunger would face the world by 1930. Today food supplies are again the cause of anxiety, and this year's President returns to the theme-food and population. What he has to say is based on a lifetime of experience, much of it as Director of the Rothamsted Experimental Station, the oldest of its kind anywhere.

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.
