' Figs, Walnuts, and Mulberries ' by Laurence J. Cook
More than twenty years ago Laurence J. Cook gave one of the first horticultural broadcasts from London, on carnations. Although his name is always linked with the development of carnations, his chief delight has always been the science of fruit-growing, which ne has studied in this country and in Germany and Belgium.

: BBC OPERA ORCHESTRA

Ian Blair (baritone)
Ballet Music
In the nineteenth century, ballet scores were always specially commissioned, but with the advent of Diaghilev and his famous Ballets Russes in the early part of the present century all that was, changed, and the treasure-houses of the great-and not so great—masters were freely rifled to provide music for ballets of many kinds.
Tonight's programme includes music specially composed and music that has been, shall we say, ' borrowed,' for ballet. The most important example in the latter category is Tchaikovsky's Fantasy Overture ' Hamlet,' which Robert Helpmann has used with such dramatic effect for his ballet of that name. In the same sphere arc numbers from Balanchme's Cotillon, danced to the music of Chabrier. Music specially written for ballet is represented by excerpts from Stravinsky's Fire-bird; from opera-ballet there are the choral dances fom Rimsky-Korsakov's fairy-tale opera Sadko and dances from Meyerbeer's Roben the Devil, Harold Neden

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Missions to Seamen, by Richard Dimbleby , O.B.E.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Richard Dimbleby , Esq., [address removed]
The Missions to Seamen was founded in 1856 to place on a national basis work begun some years before in the Bristol Channel area. Its aim is the welfare-spiritual and material-of all seafarers irrespective of their race or creed. Its flag, the ' Flying Angel,' has long been for merchant seamen the symbol of world-wide service, and the Society has been able, particularly in two wars, to minister to men of the Royal Navy as well.

: ' MARY LOVELACE

From the novel Is He Popenjoy?' by Anthony Trollope
Dramatised as a serial play by H. Oldfield Box
Produced by Wilfrid Grantham
7 — 'Mary is Very Ill-used'
Cast in order of speaking:
Lord George's brother, the Marquis of Brotherton. has returned at last to Manor Cross with his Italian wife and his year-old son. But he shuts himself away from the world, treats his relations with the greatest insolence, and will do nothing to prove his child's legitimacy. The Dean has therefore declared war, and the matter, much against Lord George's will, has been placed in the hands of the Dean's lawyer, Mr. Battle.
Tonight's episode reveals the result ot
Mr. Battle's first enquiries, and tells how Mary's friendship with Captain de Baron brings her yet more difficulties.

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.
