Interlude
2.5 The Practice and Science of Gardening—10
' Regional Aspects of Crop Production '
B. A. KEEN , D.Sc., F.R.S.
It is common knowledge that the north of Britain is colder than the south, that the west is wetter than the east, and that high land is colder than low land. The situation of slopes is also of importance, since those facing north produce their vegetation later than those facing south. The quality of the soil, too, must be taken into account.
Today Dr. Keen will explain how such factors as these influence gardening and fruit-growing, and he will show what methods have been adopted to overcome difficulties and in certain cases to turn them to advantage.
2.25 Interlude
2.30 Concert to Schools
GEORGE DIXON (baritone)
THE LONDON SENIOR ORCHESTRA
Conductor, ERNEST READ
In the autumn of 1934 the happy idea was inaugurated of broadcasting an end-of-term concert in which Schools could join-a sort of breaking-up jollification ; and today the fifth concert of the kind is to be given. Once again the London Senior Orchestra, which has accompanied every concert, will provide the music, and Ernest Read , who founded the orchestra, will conduct. Though listeners will hear only George Dixon singing, they should remember that he is leading boy and girl vocalists in the schools. With pamphlets containing the words of the songs in their hands the schoolchildren will be singing all the songs.

: ' Scrapbook for 1914'

Presented by LESLIE BAILY and CHARLES BREWER
THE B B C THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Conducted by MARK H. LUBBOCK
This is no history book-just a scrapbook of fragments. We pick and choose, laying a cherished oddment beside the quaint choice of a moment ago. Voices from the past. Songs of yesteryear. Events re-lived. This oddness, these strange juxtapositions are the fascination of a scrapbook.

This programme was originally produced in May, 1934, and was afterwards recorded for Empire broadcasts. It is considered by many the best of the ' Scrapbooks '. ' Scrapbook for 1924 ' is to be done in May, and the postponed '1901' probably in September.
' Scrapbook for 1914 ' will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at 7.15

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.
