Last week you heard about the fishing industry in the north-west of North America. Today Dr. F. D. Ommanney is to tell you about whaling at the opposite pole. The Southern Pacific off the Antarctic Continent is the home of the great whales. You will hear about their food—krill ; about products obtained from them—whalebone, whaleoil, spermaceti, and ambergris ; about whaling stations in South Georgia and on Deception Island ; and all about the industry.

: In Your Garden C. H. MIDDLETON

There is no busier time of the year for a gardener, and though hedges and ornamental deciduous trees require trimming, shrubs and bushes staking and tying, though gladioli and hardy biennials wait to be planted and perennials to be divided, it is to the kitchen garden that all hands must be rushed.
The pruning of fruit trees must be finished ; potatoes must be put in-a labour of Hercules. Main crops of peas, Windsor beans, parsnips, carrots must be sown. Leeks along with onions-the young onions to be drawn for spring salads, the leeks to stand. Mustard and cress with a sheet of glass to assist germination ; radishes white and red ; early lettuce in sheltered corners. Then there are cabbages and artichokes to be planted out, night sentries of soot to be posted against raids by slugs, and a hundred and one other things requiring immediate attention.
Whether you're a head gardener with labour reduced to half a man and a boy through financial crisis at the Manor, or whether you're owner, gardener and boy yourself, you're lost without method.
This evening Mr. C. H. Mid dleton is to devote his talk to the kitchen garden-to method, sowing and planting, roots and seeds, soil and nourishment, protection ; in short, to all the things belonging to March.

: THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA (Section D)

Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
A Mussorgsky Programme In 1873, Victor Hartmann, a well-known architect and painter, member of Balikirev's circle, and close friend of Stassov, the critic, and Mussorgsky, died at the early age of thirty-nine. Mussorgsky was deeply upset and in the following year when Stassov arranged an exhibition of Hartmann's water colours and drawings, he was moved to compose a cycle of ten piano pieces based on various subjects from Hartmann's pictures. These he entitled ' Pictures from an Exhibition '. , Mussorgsky appears to have been highly stimulated with the idea, for in a letter to Stassov, to whom the work is dedicated, he says : ' Hartmann is bubbling over, just as Boris Godonov did. Ideas, melodies, come to me of their own accordI can hardly manage to put it all down on paper fast enough '. One of these ideas was an introduction under the title of Promenade, which represents the spectator walking through the exhibition, and as he moves on from one picture to another a modified version of it reappears. Mussorgsky was particularly pleased with these ' promenades ' and asserted that his ' own physiognomy peeps out all through ' them. It is indeed curious that ' Pictures from an Exhibition ' was not conceived as an orchestral work by the composer, since the music and most of the programmatic subjects demand orchestral treatment to do them justice. Nevertheless, it is not until one has compared the original piano solo with Ravel's orchestral version, made at the request of Koussevitsky in 1922, that one realises the great understanding and imagination that went to the making of the latter. In some of the numbers Ravel uses the full resources of the modern orchestra, in others a mere handful of instruments with which he secures the most masterly and striking effect.

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.
