Nature Study
' Round the Country-side '
1 - ' The Naked Trees '
RICHARD MORSE
The countryside becomes a much more interesting place when we learn to recognise the trees which we see on our rambles. Even when they are bare of all leaves and flowers, each tree has its own characteristic features, and can generally be distinguished from its fellows quite easily after a little practice.
In his talk this afternoon Mr. Richard i
Morse will describe some of the most interesting features of our naked trees. He will speak of boles and branches, of buds and twigs and scars, and will show what can be learned from a simple study of the various forms which they assume.
The value of the talk will be greatly enhanced if teachers can provide some small twigs of common trees for actual study by the pupils.

Some Books I Like
' Sir Nigel by A. Conan Doyle
HOWARD MARSHALL
What with books, poetry, and dramatic readings from Shakespeare, this course is as interesting as any in the term. Listeners will welcome the return of Mr. Howard Marshall and also extend a welcome to a new broadcaster in Mr. William Stone who has been a lecturer in English at the University Training department, Southampton. The dramatic readings are from Macbeth (February n) and The Merchant of Venice (March 10).
An innovation in the course is that for the first time two books that are not fiction are to be discussed : ' South with Scott ', on February 4, and ' The Man-Eaters of Tsavo ', on March 24. The Man-Eaters were the lions that harried the constructors of the railway from Mombasa to Nairobi, jumping into the tents at night and carrying off the natives in their mouths. It is one of the most exciting books that was ever written.

The harp that once thro' Tara's Halls Let Erin remember the days of old Thro' grief and thro' danger It is not the tear

The meeting of the waters
We may roam thro' this world Avenging and bright
Believe me, if all those endearing young charms
The time I've lost in wooing 'Tis the last rose of summer

: Here's George

A Radio Ramble with Robey
Schemed and Scribbled by GEORGE ROBEY and RUPERT HAZELL
Here is a cheerful answer to that much-asked question 'Where's George?' - Robey, the unanimously ejected Prime Minister of Mirth, at the microphone in person. It is not his radio debut, but this evening listeners will hear him in a show entirely different from his previous broadcasts.
Briefly, the programme will cover Robey's life from the time of his first appearance on the stage over forty years ago to the present day. And what a life! Most of it will be described and illustrated by Robey himself. And what George leaves out, Rupert Hazell will fill in-authoritatively, for he has been associated with Robey on and off ever since 1918, when he wrote the classic 'I Mean to Say'.
Elsie Day, the soprano and comedienne, who is also to appear, is Hazell's wife.
Finally, Mario de Pietro is in the cast for an unusual reason, a reason connected with a little-known phase of Robey's younger days - a dark secret that will be revealed in a novel manner.
See the article by George Robey on page 11.

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.
