'The River Thames'—3
The Great Days of the Cotswolds ' EILEEN POWER (Professor of Economic
History in the University of London)
Last week Professor Eileen Power told you about the Cotswolds under Roman rule. Today she is to describe the Great Days of the Cotswolds. The sheep-farmers of the Middle Ages ; the monasteries-Gloucester Abbey, Hayles Abbey, and Winchcombe. The ' woolmen ' ; Northleach and its church; brasses. A wool merchant of Campden and his house ; market halls and pack horses. The cloth trade ; and old Cotswold mills.
There will be many things for you to ot down in your notebooks while you listen to this talk. Things about woo and things about mills. Is there a mill standing in your district ? ... Why is the Lord Chancellor's seat in the House of Lords called the Woolsack ? What are ' tithes ' that we hear so much about today ? Were there ever monasteries in your district where the monks carried on agriculture or sheep-farming ?

District Councils as they exist today. This afternoon Mr. K. C. Boswell is to tell you about the Boroughs of olden days. He will speak of times when towns grew up out of waste or wood or meadowland, and how they helped in the work of governing the country.

How Life is Lived-4,
' Do Plants " feel " ? '
DORIS L. MACKINNON , D.Sc. (Professor of Zoology, King's College, University of London)
This afternoon Professor Doris Mac kinnon is to talk about ' sensitive' plants and tendrils. All shoots are sensitive to the light they must have, and grow towards it. All roots are sensitive to the earth and water they must have, and grow towards them. In this way plants feel. The blind, living seed in the ground follows the only course by which it can survive. Put it in upside down-it makes no difference. The shoot will bend round and grow upward ; the root will bend round and grow down.
There are other plants that are sensitive to touch. Touch a stinging nettle and you'll know it. Touch a white petal of a gardenia and it turns brown.
Touch the leaflets of the wood sorrel and they will gradually fold down against the leaf stalk. Professor Mackinnon will give you many other examples of how plants feel.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
