: Week-Ends at Work

Fire and Water
By a Member of the London Fire
Brigade and an Engine-driver of the Metropolitan Water Board
Fire and water are very much linked up. Both good servants, but bad masters Both indispensable to all of us as much on Sundays as on weekdays. And it is appropriate that a member of the London Fire Brigade should describe his week-end duties in the same programme as an engine-driver of the Metropolitan Water Board, for without water, how could the firemen put out the fire ?

6-' Summer Cultivation '
F. W. COSTIN , N.D.H., F.R.H.S.
This afternoon Mr. Costin is to talk about the methods and objects of surface cultivation: rolling, hoeing, mulching, weeding, watering-this ]ast a thing that can be greatly overdone. In fact, a famous gardener has said that more mistakes are made in a garden with a watering-can and hosepipe than anything else, and that half the laborious watering that is done does a good deal more harm than good.
A soil that has been well dug and is well cultivated is in the right condition for drawing up water to the roots, and a surface that is hoed will
I keep the moisture from evaporating.
With the free use of the hoe plants can
: live through a very dry summer on the moisture in the ground.

: This Time Last Year

' Sight-seeing' EILUNED LEWIS
Listeners who may be seeking a new kind of holiday have heard talks in this series on sailing, climbing, bicycling, walking, and caravanning ; but here is something less catalogued and more elusive. The artist, whether painter, sculptor, poet, author-anyone who creates-may see things with a different eye from others. The holiday which another may vote dull may-be delightful to the artist because of the aesthetic pleasure of the place which may be altogether without amusement.
And so Miss Eiluned Lewis , author of ' The Dew on the Grass', a story about children which won the Gold Medal of the Book Guild for the best novel of 1934, is to tell listeners this evening of those things that appealed to her on a holiday she once took.

' Insects and Flowers '
JAMES RITCHIE , D.Sc. (Regius Professor of Natural History in the University of Aberdeen)
The flood tide of insect life synchronises with the flood tide of foliage and flowers, and this evening Professor Ritchie is to discuss the association between flowers and insects and draw attention to the association of particular insects with particular flowers. It is no accident that the bumble-bee is partial to the snapdragon-its bulk is required to fertilise it; and it is no accident that the flower opening out at night is pale and sweet-scented to attract the moth.
In his talk on life in a wasps' nest
Professor Ritchie remarked on the significance of the fact that the citadel is at full strength at the time of the year when there is abundance of food for the young citizens. Every grub carried to the wasps' nest is the potential destroyer of a flower, and, with every caterpillar carried in, a double service is performed.

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.
