: The Victorian Kitchen Garden

A series of 13 films in which a walled garden is restored, and worked as it was a hundred years ago.
Presented by Peter Thoday with Head Gardener Harry Dodson 2: January
Harry remembers his life in the walled gardens and his rise from garden boy to head gardener. In the garden he tackles the winter jobs - building hot beds to bring on early crops of lettuce and carrots and 'tagging and nailing' fruit trees.
Peter explores the garden's greatest asset - its four walls. He examines the elaborate system of boilers and pipes that heated the glasshouses, and unearths a very grand ice house.
'January is the last month of preparation ... the good steward who has husbanded his time, may now seat himself, and with folded arms give himself up to contemplation....'

Crusoe's Children
Robinson Crusoe is the great survivor of English fiction. Since its first publication in 1719 Daniel Defoe 's novel of shipwreck has never been out of print. It has been the subject of pantomimes, comic strips, tv series and countless films, from Hollywood to Nazi Germany. It has inspired economists, advertisers and real-life adventurers. And in recent years novelists and playwrights have been turning again to Defoe's original story, reworking for a modern audience its themes of solitude and the encounter with a stranger from another race.
With the help of Jane Gardam , Harry Greene , Lucy Irvine, Adrian Mitchell ,
Caryl Phillips , Pat Rogers , Michel Tournier and others this month's Bookmark explores the complex legacy of this extraordinary book. Featuring CHRISTOPHER ASANTE. CLIFFORD ROSE, MALCOLM STORRY and HEATHER TOBIAS

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.
