Helen Cox demonstrates the making of a favourite New Zealand sweet, the Pavlova.
The Recipe:
(1) Grease a piece of greaseproof paper and place on oven tray. Light oven.
(2) Separate the yolks and whites of 4, 5 or 6 eggs (depending on the size of Pavlova required). Drop the white into a basin and the yolks into a small saucepan.
(3) Beat the egg whites for'minute, then add sugar gradually. Use oz. sugar for each egg white. Continue beating until mixture is very stiff, adding 1-1.1 teasp. vinegar and 1 teasp. salt. The mixture must stand in peaks without falling over.
(4) Pile mixture on to the greased paper, making a perfect round, about 9 in. across. Place centre of oven and bake for 11 hours. Allow to cool in oven.
(5) With the 4 egg yolks make a lemon honey, using 4 tablesp. lemon juice and 1 breakfast cup sugar. Cook until thick, then allow to cool.
(6) Lift carefully on to a large flat dish. If the top tends to break, don't worry. Spread with the lemon honey, then with at least 1 inch of whipped cream. (1 teasp. sugar and 2 or 3 teasp. rum may be added to the cream.)

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.
