: 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 3: February
Winter locks the garden in its icy grip. It is an opportunity for repairing tools. Peter shows the range the Victorian gardener had at his disposal. Harry turns his attention to the forcing house where he plants chicory, asparagus and rhubarb. The Victorians had a taste for the delicate flavour of forced vegetables.
They developed new methods of cultivation and gave the country its first purpose-made, artificial fertiliser.
'Although stern winter, with its ice-bound chains, exerts its influence over the soil, the gardener may find employment preparatory to commencing his operations of ploughing and planting ...' Kitchen Gardener's Instructor Music by PAUL READE

: Antenna

Introduced by Prof Lewis Wolpert FRS
Issues from science today. From darkest Africa to
Britain's Cheddar Gorge , man has left traces of cannibalistic practices. Anthropologist William Arens re-examines the evidence and argues that the man-eating myth has been too readily accepted.
Jonathan Glover questions the ethics of the expanding industry of infertility treatment. In the two years since the Warnock
Committee reported, over 30 clinics offering test-tube babies have opened. Are the controls adequate and how far should the law interfere? A report on the latest findings from Antarctica, as the U2 modified spy plane completes its flights through the recently discovered ozone hole in the atmosphere. Is there real cause for concern for scientists and politicians back on earth?

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.
