' Silk in Japan '
A. B. LOWNDES
It has been said that nearly half the farming population of Japan breeds silk-worms, and the industry takes up a lot of the family's time. Silk-worms need an even temperature, regular feeding, constant attention day and night. On the curious little farms, not much bigger than an English garden, mulberry bushes flourish on the slopes and are treasured not only for their fruit, but for the leaves on which silk-worms feed.
Today Mr. A. B. Lowndes is to talk about a silk-worm farm, and he will tell you how the silk is woven into cloth, and how it is bought and sold.
He will describe his journey to the silk district, and you will travel with him in imagination through this picturesque land-mountains, trees, water-falls, rice, tea. And the farmer in his tight blue trousers and loose blue tunic, always working. He keeps off the rain with a coat of dried grass, and a large straw hat is his umbrella. You will hear how he lives on rice and fish in a house without furniture.

: In Your Garden

C. H. MIDDLETON
Almost every gardener is interested in chrysanthemums, whether the more ornate varieties that it is beyond most of us to grow, or the early flowering garden varieties that bloom on even after the first frosts have smitten down the dahlias.
For those who are lucky enough to possess greenhouses chrysanthemums spend from June until the end of October out of doors, and are then moved into the greenhouse to flower. And what processes have been gone through-processes of potting and re-potting, of nipping back and hardening off, of side shoots being suppressed and tops pinched off-before the gardener may have his reward !
This evening Mr. C. H. Middleton is to bring to the microphone Mr. A. J. Cobh , senior lecturer in Horticulture in Reading University, who will give a talk on chrysanthemums.

: 'I've got to have Music'

Presented by AUSTEN CROOM -JOHNSON
Orchestration by Eric Siday with FRED DOUGLAS
DOROTHY LEIGH
Val ROSING and ELISABETH WELCH
This is the third broadcast in this already popular series, the aim of which is to present music with a ' listenable ' appeal. As before, it is arranged by Austen Croom-Johnson , with the co-operation of Eric Siday , and the support of the same all-star dance band.
Of the vocalists, it is always good news when Elisabeth Welch can broadcast. She was in the last show in this series, but was unobtainable for the first. Val Rosing , always popular, was in both shows-he both acts and sings in the In Town Tonight film, shortly to be released. Dorothy Leigh , also in both shows, has played leads in revues and musical comedy in England, Australia, and South Africa, and will be remembered for her recent broadcast in Tuppenny-ha'penny Opera. Fred Douglas , that cheery comedian and great renderer of happy songs, makes his first appearance in this series. He is among the most popular gramophone recording artists in the country. And last but not least, Eddie Pola is to be the announcer.
As before, the ' medley of melodies ' will be divided into groups : i, A Medley of Tunes—' The Blue Room ', ' The Girl Friend ', ' Fancy our Meeting ', songs recapturing the atmosphere of musical shows over the last nine years ; 2, Old-Time Favourites, with Sir Roger de Coverley as its signature tune; 3, Happy Songs.

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.
