: British and Overseas Dishes: VII

Mrs. Kathleen Bowker: 'Canadian Favourites' - II
Maple sugar is the great contribution of Canada to the sweet-lovers of the world, and in her first talk, Mrs. Bowker described various delicacies in which this is employed. Her kind of rice pudding should revolutionize children's lives: excellent, too, are her maple-sugar sandwiches and sweet omelettes. She also gave recipes for buckwheat cakes, strawberry shortcake, and 'gooey buns.' This week she gets on to sterner stuff. She begins by describing some quick methods in cooking-the egg-beater, the mincing-machine, etc. Then she considers vegetables, which are very different and differently cooked in Canada: corn... six ways with tomatoes... baby beets... cold slaw... potato cakes... are sub-titles for this section. She ends by a discourse on salads, and shows how they can be good even in winter.

: 'THE NEW SPIRIT IN LITERATURE '—X

The Hon. HAROLD NICOLSON , C.M.G.: ' Reading as a Means of Self-Education '
MR. HAROLD NICOLSON , having described in some detail the essentials of the modern spirit in literature, returns to reading in general and its uses. It is important not to confuse reading and study : ' study ' gives learning, while reading aims at culture. Culture is an attitude of mind: it is the constant exploitation of curiosity. General and ill-directed reading may produce a certain kind of culture, but it does not create education ; that requires disciplined planning. Mr. Nicolson gives some suggestions on how to educate oneself. ' A little knowledge is a dangerous thing'; it is far better to know everything about something than something about everything. Elasticity of mind and judgment is preferable to a mass of ill-digested knowledge. And in any case it is easier to acquire a point of view than a classical education.

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.
