From page 63 of 'When Two or Three'

: 'The Time for Weaning'

By a Doctor
The first four talks in this series having been devoted to the health of the mother, listeners are now to hear about the health of the child, and this talk deals with the feeding of a baby up to the time it is weaned. By listening for a quarter of an hour on this, and subsequent Friday mornings, young mothers will be able to hear everyday difficulties discussed in a common-sense manner. They are to hear this morning how and why breast-feeding is to the advantage of the baby ; when and how they shall wean it; and when discretion should override the best of rules.
From II.0 to 11.30 London National (261.1 m.) will radiate Television.

: To Unemployed Clubs 'This and That'

JOHN HILTON
Friday afternoon talks in this group, under the heading of ' This and That', will be given every week by Mr. John Hilton , who will talk of current events both at home and abroad, and give a running commentary on life in general.
It will be remembered that Mr. Hilton made a tour of the industrial centres of Britain in the early part of this year. He travelled some 2,000 miles, and went over nearly a hundred workshops and factories collecting material for his broadcast series ' Industrial Britain '.
Listeners in Unemployed Clubs will be addressed by a man who knows the hardship of labour and the still greater hardship of unemployment-a man who started life in a mill himself and whose hobby is work.

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.
