ANN DRIVER
At the end of this term Ann Driver completes a year's broadcasting, and it was realised months ago that she was a broadcast' find '. Recently the students at a London Training College attended a nursery school during one of her broadcasts, and wrote essays on what they had observed.
' She anticipated the movements of the children so well that she might have been watching them'... ' Walking; running, skipping, all done to music ' The mood of the music was beautifully arranged. They enjoyed the imaginative work and seemed to grasp everything ' .... ' They really enjoyed it '.

Life and Work-I
' Tropical Timbers from Siam'
Captain F. McDERMOTT
This series goes on, never losing in interest or in usefulness of purpose. Schools learn from it not only the important product of a particular place, but all about that place. Something of its scenery, climate, fauna, flora, its native people and their customs.
Today, Captain F. McDermott is to tell them about the long journey-sometimes lasting for five years-of a log from the tropical forests of Siam many hundreds of miles through forests, clearings, rivers, and towns to the timber yards where it is kept before being shipped to other ports, or for building.
Captain McDermott will describe a stroll through a tropical forest, and tell you about trees so hard that they will blunt a chisel, and trees so soft that they are nothing but dust. He will talk about the value of teak and other tropical hard woods ; about the white ant, the enemy of man ; about elephants that think, and white elephants that are not white.

: ' In your Garden' C. H. MIDDLETON

This evening Mr. C. H. Middleton :s to come alone to the microphone to give one of his welcome seasonal talks. In the flower garden, though the May-flowering tulips and Darwins have yet to bloom, there is much to be done to prepare for summer.
As to young plants, there are still frosts about, and it is the month when slugs, unless severely dealt with, are far more remorseless enemies. There are annuals to be thinned out. There are massing armies of aphides to be syringed off the rose trees ... then, in the kitchen garden, there are caterpillars to be picked from currant and gooseberry bushes, salads to be sown, and marrow beds to be prepared.
Flower garden, vegetable garden, orchard, cold frame, glasshouse all call for attention, and Mr. Middleton has prepared for listeners a number of invaluable reminders for May.

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.
