: Shopping and Cooking EMELIE WALLER

I.isteners have heard, over a series of six talks, suggestions from Miss Monica Dixon as to the wisest way for a housewife to spend the sum of twenty-one shillings weekly to buy the food for a family consisting of herself, her husband, and three children.
This morning Mrs. Emelie Waller , known to listeners for her broadcast talks in the ' Wise Penny' series last year, is to do the same thing for the same family, the only difference being that the housewife now has a sum of twenty-seven shillings and sixpence to spend each week instead of one guinea, this new sum again being taken as a basic figure.
All menus suggested in these talks are to be found in the pamphlet' Shopping and Cooking', obtainable from the B.B.C. Publications Department, price 2d., 3d. post free.

' Kangaroo Hunters of the Australian

R. PIDDINGTON
This morning Mr. Ralph Piddington is to tell you about the Australian ' blackfellow ' who is not black but chocolate brown. He is not very tall, he is fond of growing a beard, usually black, his ancestors long ago probably came here from India or Ceylon or the Malay peninsula.
His happy hunting ground is over the Australian scrublands that are fringed with miles of waving grass, and here he has no settled habitation, but strikes and sets his camp as the mood moves him and hunts kangaroo and emu with dingos-a wild, half-domesticated dog.
The ' blackfellows ' do strange, interesting things, from increasing plums by magic to initiating their sons with weird dances and mystery into tribal rites.

'Feathers'
NOBLE ROLLIN
Most of you have heard the expression ' as light as a feather', and Mr. Rollin, the Northumberland bird lover, will give you an idea of the weights of various feathers, and the approximate number on a bird.
He will discuss the use of feathers in flight, and their use in keeping birds warm. He will tell you something about moulting-how birds cast out their old feathers and grow new ones. And lastly he will tell you how to identify some feathers you may find on the ground.
From the point of view of sheet beauty, feathers come next to birds' eggs. You mustn't take birds' eggs, as you know, but all of you are free to pick up a feather from the ground.
The soft, grey, black-tipped feather of a wood pigeon ; the barred black and bronze tail feather of a pheasant; the small green-gold feather from a greenfinch; the little turquoise-blue and black feather from the wing of a jay-any of these you may find on a country walk and take home with you to add to your collection. And do you know that the thrush has bright orange feathers under its wings?

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.
