: THE NATURALIST'S EYE

A series of talks in which different speakers choose an area and describe the kinds of life to be found in it
2-The Machair of the Uistsby F. Fraser Darling D.SC., Ph.D. ,
The machair land is the Atlantic strip of the Outer Isles of the Hebrides, and a type of country unique in Great Britain. With a wealth of bird and insect life, it partly resembles Arctic tundra, yet many of its flowers are those found on the chalk downs of Southern England. It is preserved in great measure by the influence of man, through practices of grazing and cultivation long established there.

: THE COUNTY COURTS ACT

A barrister describes the effect of this new Act which will extend the jurisdiction of the County Court
The speaker believes that as the real ' People's Court' the County Court has had less attention than it deserves, possibly because its cases tend to be undramatic and have hitherto been considered mostly small and unimportant. In the next few months the situation may be considerably altered, in view of the new legislation and also of the forthcoming extension of Legal Aid to the County Court.

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.
