: BIRDS IN BRITAIN

Birds-of-Prey in Scotland and their Protection
Edited and introduced by James Fisher
The kite, sea-eagle, and osprey, three of the six large birds-of-prey which nested regularly in Scotland during the last century, have since become extinct; but the remaining trio-golden eagle, hen harrier, and buzzard-are commoner now than at the turn of the century, and are extending their range.
EDWARD BALFOUR , guardian of the hen harrier in the Orkney Islands, tells how the bigamous behaviour of the males has slowed down the rate of increase
ADAM WATSON gives an encouraging report on the status of the golden eagle, despite continued persecution in some areas
GEORGE WATERSTON describes how the osprey's recent attempt to re-establish itself as a nester was foiled by an egg-collector

: Ursula Howells in ' FLOWERING WILDERNESS'

by John Galsworthy
Dramatised as a serial in nine parts by Muriel Levy
PART 3
Production by Robin Midgley and Val Gielgud
Although she has only known Wilfrid Desert for nine days, it is becoming clear that Dinny Charwell is falling in love with him.
Sir Lawrence Mont, the storyteller, and uncle of Dinny, feels it his duty to tell Dinny some of the stories that are going around about Wilfrid. But she finds out for herself through reading Wilfrid's poem, which tells his own story. The man who now asks her to marry him has so far transgressed all that stands for the English sense of form by having turned Moslem at pistol-point while he was out East, rather than lose his life. The family begs her to think seriously before she makes any decision.

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.
