Mr. CLIFFORD COLLINSON : 'Covent Garden '
COVENT GARDEN was originally a convent garden, where a salad was cut for a lady abbess, and flowers wero gathered to adorn images.' There are plenty of flowers to bo found there today, but they no longer grow there. It is now the site of tho central London market for flowers, fruit and vegetables. Thus it remains true to the tradition of the garden by bringing all tho fragrance and colour of the countryside into the very heart of the drab metropolis. The long glass-roofed arcades are seen at their brightest and busiest in tho small hours of the morning on one of the official market days, but sightseers at such a time are tolerated rather than welcomed.

Professor JAMES RITCHIE , D.Sc. (Professor of Natural History in the University of Aberdeen): 'Sport and Commerce take a Hand in the Game '
(From Aberdeen)
EVEN the wild creatures of our countryside have their own alien problem. Professor
Ritchie deals here with various aspects of that problem. Some of the commonest species-the rabbit and the grey squirrel, for example— were first imported to these shores in the interests of commerce, but have rapidly turned into pests. The common brown rat, a by-product of commereo, is definitely an ' undesirable.' Other crpatures, such as the pheasant and the red-legged partridge, were imported and bred for sport, and have, so to speak, been allowed to take out papers of naturalization.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
