Interlude
2.5 The Practice and Science of Gardening ' The Soil'
B. A. KEEN , D.Sc., F.R.S.
For the new school year, which began this term, these talks are to be divided between Dr. B. A. Keen (who has given the scientific talks since the series started) and Mr. C. H. Middleton , who is to deal with the practical side. School boys and girls must have listened to his gardening talks on many an occasion after getting back from school. I
Last week Mr. Middleton talked in this series of the garden as an integral part of the school and of school life, and now four talks on the soil are to follow-three by Dr. Keen and one by Mr. Middleton. The soil having been discussed, five talks will be given on plant growth, and then two on plant nutrition.
Listeners should carry out the experiments at the end of the pamphlet, for they are a real part of the course. Not only will they be referred to in the broadcast talks again and again, but by practical experience listeners will see for themselves what is right and wrong when it comes to gardening. Both in the experiment-room and in the school garden they will learn by gardening as well as by listening to the broadcasts on Monday afternoons.

: 'Five O'clock'

It is five o'clock, and many a family-is sitting round the tea table. In this new series they are to he entertained by a broadcast talk, or talks, on something topical, or on some special subject described by an expert.
Last week, for instance, in the first broadcast in the series, Charlie Brown , chief carver at Simpson's, gave a talk on caning, and a professional photographer one on photography. Today Kathleen Moneypenny , an Australian, who was present at the German Dance Festival held in connection with the Olympic Games, is to discuss the school of German dancing, of which Mary Wigman is the great exponent. ... Then an observer at the Conference convened by the League of Nations and held in Geneva a week or two ago to prepare a Convention on the use of broadcasting in the cause of peace is to tell listeners something of what took place.

: Lives of English Animals Red Deer HENRY WILLIAMSON

This evening the author of ' Tarka the Otter ' and ' Salar the Salmon ' is to give the first of four broadcast talks on animals, and he will repeat it on Monday afternoon, October 5, at 5 p.m. Tonight's talk on red deer will be followed by a talk on the otter on October 28, and the last two talks will be on the stoat and the badger respectively. Each of the four talks will be repeated for the benefit of a fresh circle of listeners on the following Monday afternoon.
A great number of listeners will have read a story of his, ' The Old Stag '. Stumberleap lived in a wood of that name, and was hunted many times ; in the last chase he swam across the Severn Sea and landed in Wales. Corpses of the hounds, swimming after him, were washed up eventually in Cardiff harbour.
The author in his booklet ' The Wild
Red Deer of Exmoor 'tells how the wild red deer have lived there for many thousands of years. To many farmers they are vermin. ' For'a great many years ', he says, ' the Hunts practically befriended the wild red deer of Exmoor. I, for one, a mere imaginative friend of the deer, shall always be grateful for this practical benevolence '.

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.
