JULIAN HUXLEY
The wide interest in Natural History shown by listeners results in a series being broadcast every year. This year it has been decided to continue Science in the Making' by describing in six talks the efforts that are being made by amateurs and professionals to record the activities of plants and animals by film and camera...
Many listeners to this first talk in the series this evening will have seen Julian Huxlev 's wonderful film revealing the life story of the gannet, or solan goose, that most marvellous of divers.
The film was made on an island off Pembrokeshire. Its originality of approach, the photography, and Julian Huxley 's own commentary made it one of the most interesting nature films that has yet been shown.

: ' Ancient Britain out of Doors'—1

' Digging up the Past'
JACQUETTA HAWKES
The evidence as to how Ancient Britons lived lies just as much out of doors as in libraries and museums. We find stone circles, and dolmens or cromlechs, and various other structures from prehistoric- times; in fact, every invader left something behind him. This evening Jacquetta Hawkes is to open the series, which is designed not so much for those interested in antiquity as for the legion of walkers who through the summer months explore little-known spots in Britain. Some idea of ancient Britain, as revealed by this relic and that, will make these walks more interesting.

: Chamber Music and Poetry THE MODERN WIND QUINTET:

Edward Walker (flute) ; Terence McDonagh (oboe); Reginald Kell (clarinet) ; Alan Hyde (horn) ;
Gwydion Holbrooke (bassoon)
Reader, V. C. CLINTON BADDELEY
The members of the Modem Wind Quintet are drawn from London s three leading orchestras—B.B.C., London
Philharmonic and London Symphony. Formed three years ago for the purpose of creating interest in the large repertory of classical and modern chamber music for wind instruments, the Modern Wind Quintet spares no effort to attain a standard of performance usually associated with that of a first-rate string quartet.
The programme this evening includes a Quintet by Franz Reizenstein , who studied under Hindemith at the Berlin State High School of Music, and is now studying under Vaughan Williams at the Royal College of Music.

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.
