: For Farmers Only

ANTHONY HURD
The farming talks this season are to he given by Anthony Hurd, one of the younger generation of farmers. It is ten years since he started farming on his own account near Marlborough in Wiltshire, but ten years is no time in the life of a farmer. He has taken a full part in the agricultural activities of the county, having been chairman of the county branch of the National Farmers' Union three years ago. He is now a member of the Council, also chairman of the Wiltshire Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs.
Combining journalism with farming Anthony Hurd has been Farm Editor of The Field since 1924, and later he was appointed Agricultural Correspondent of The Times. Monday's agricultural page is a feature well-known to many farmers and towns-people. They will from now on be listening to him on the air on Monday evenings.
This evening, in his second talk, he is to discuss farming in Sweden where he spent some time last month.

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.
