The Practice and Science of Gardening—1
' How the Seeds got into the Packet'
B. A. KEEN , D.Sc.
Last term Dr. B. A. Keen and Mr. C. H. Middleton told you about the soil and how you should prepare it for the growth of plants. This term, in alternate talks, they are to tell you about the plants themselves-how a plant grows from the seed to, say, a ten-week stock, just as the life in an egg develops into a chick that hatches out and grows into a cock or hen.
If you have a garden and look around it, you will find here a tiny marigold, there a small snapdragon, bravely growing from seeds that ripened in the sun last summer, dropped to earth, lay dormant for a while, and germinated in spite of the winter frosts.
Forget-me-nots, pulled up in the summer when they have finished flowering, and shaken over the garden bed, will produce seedlings in such abundance as to be almost a nuisance. But other plants, like the zinnia, are so delicate in infancy that however carefully the seeds are sown and the seedlings cared for, many of them will perish before they have a chance to bear a flower.

S. R. LITTLEWOOD
These talks have always been favourites with listeners, and they are being given this session by a pioneer broadcaster, who gave a talk on Shakespeare in the first year of broadcasting.
Mr. S. R. Littlewood is dramatic critic of The Morning Post, and has had long experience of dramatic criticism on various papers. He is familiar to the modern generation of listeners through his recent morning talks ' The Family Album ', and he gave a talk last Wednesday on two diaries written in China, in the ' Would You Change ? ' series. He discusses his appointment as B.B.C. dramatic critic, and radio criticism in general, in a characteristic article on page 7.

: ' The Artist and his Public '—3

' Art Free and in Service '
ERIC NEWTON
In his talk this evening Mr. Eric Newton will discuss imaginative art. He will touch on art before and after the Renaissance, and will trace the shaping of its central aims towards material things. The only ideas to which art is in service today are ideas of commerce. Good as commercial art may be, the bulk of modern art is not in service at all, and has to fall back on the personality of the artist. Subject matter has ceased to be of importance. The artist's attitude to his subject has taken its place. The modern artist is an individual who stands or falls by the power or feebleness of his personal vision.

: 'Youth Looks Ahead'—

The Rev. JOSEPH MCCULLOCH
Tonight's speaker was a scholar of Exeter College, Oxford, was ordained in 1931, and held several curacies before he came to St. John's, Westminster, a few months ago.
The church has a seating capacity of 2,000, and every Sunday it is almost filled.
He gave a stage pageant in the church during Christmas week. Scenes were depicted from Genesis to the Birth of Christ. He arranged it himself, and the pageant was staged with modern lighting. Each night the church was filled.
The views of such a man-still in his twenties-are views worth hearing. And he is to look ahead in this series tonight.

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.
