' Round the Countryside '
ERIC PARKER : 3-' Autumn Migrants '
Today Mr. Eric Parker , Editor-in-Chief of The Field, is to give the second of his fortnightly talks to schools in the autumn programme. Most of you know that certain birds stay in this country all the year round, whilst others come and go at various seasons. Redwings and fieldfares, for instance, come from farther north in the autumn to winter here in a warmer climate. Have you ever seen them ? Did you ever note the first autumn day on which you did ?
Martins and swallows, on the contrary, have spent the late spring and summer here and migrate in the autumn to Mediterranean countries where it is warmer still. So you have birds changing their places of stay for the sake of climate, and to get what suits them, they will struggle on in exhausting flights across land and sea.
Some of you may have noticed a few-martins and swallows reappearing on mild mornings about a month after apparently all have gone. Because of this unexpected reappearance the great naturalist, Gilbert White , of Selborne, surmised that they had been awakened from sleep and thought it not unreasonable to suppose that a certain number of swallows and martins, unlike the majority, spend the winter here in a state of torpor.

: A Tour Through Time and Space-I

' Our Home in Space-the Earth'
Sir JAMES JEANS, F.R.S.
More perhaps than any other scientist, Sir James Jeans has succeeded in interpreting science to the people, particularly in his book ' The Mysterious Universe ', and this evening he is to give his first talk in this new series...
It aims at conveying a popular idea of the universe-the earth, the sky, the moon and other planets, the sun and its family, other suns than our own, the Milky Way, and the further depths of space.
In these talks listeners are to travel in their imaginations with Sir James, so far through space that our earth will look tinier than a speck of dust, and so far through time that all human history will shrink to nothing.
This evening, before starting on our long journey, we are to examine our home in space-the 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.
