Nature Study
Nature's Story-book : How to read this Book
WATKIN W. WILLIAMS
If you go for a walk in the country, you can see what is happening all round you -the leaves changing colour and falling, the trees growing bare. But you have only to look a little closer to become a Sherlock Holmes of the countryside. Tracks in the mud will tell you what has happened-a rabbit or a bird has passed this way ; and presently you may come on scattered fur or feather, and feel a little sad at what it suggests. Or you can look in the hedgerow-clusters of roots, showing nothing but leaves, will tell you where to go primrosing next spring.
This afternoon Watkin W. Williams , who broadcast for the first time in the Children's Hour recently, is going to introduce listeners to the first chapter of what he calls Nature's Story-book. For he sees Nature as a book which all of us may open. The country meadow, the town park, the window box in a tenement, the cat with her kittens in the cellar-each has its own story to tell.

: THE ORPHEUS TRIO

This is the first appearance of the Orpheus Trio. Shortly after being demobilised in 1919 three young musicians, Sverdloff (violinist), John Moore ('cellist), and Louis Revel (pianist), earned their living by playing in a suburban cinema. Since then Sverdloff has become an eminent hotel orchestral leader ; John Moore went from the cinema to Blackpool, where he appeared three times daily as a Rumanian musician. From Blackpool he came to London and joined the old Queen's Hall Orchestra, and when Sir Thomas Beecham formed the London Philharmonic Orchestra a few years ago he shared first the desk of the 'cellos with Anthony Pini. In addition to these activities, he has been 'cellist of the Stratton String Quartet since its formation. The third member of the Trio, Louis Revel , is well known to listeners as a pianist and composer.

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.
