' Cultivators of the Nile Valley '
WINIFRED S. BLACKMAN
Winter is with us, fields have lost their colour, and growth has stopped, but in Egypt, where the floods'have subsided during the last fortnight, leaving a layer of fertile sediment in the valley, the farmers have been busy sowing, and by Christmas from either bank of the Nile green wheatfields will ' stretch out towards the yellow sand '.
The harvest will be gathered in April, and from then until the end of May it is dry, barren, and desolate in Egypt. June brings the cooling ' winds of the North' from the Mediterranean, and once again the annual floods begin.
Winifred S. Blackman is to tell us all about this today, and what it means to the people of Egypt. She will also say something about the religion and industries, about the life of the peasants (or fellahin), and about medicines and charms.

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.
