Nature Study
' Some Beasts of Prey'
C. C. GADDUM
This afternoon Mr. Gaddum will first of all deal with the cat, and show that it has certain well-marked traits characteristic of some animals of prey ; for instance, its habit of hunting alone, and the extreme stealth and quietness with which it moves. Next he will take the fox as illustrating another type of carnivorous animal, and will give an account of the home life of the vixen and cubs. Finally, he will deal with two birds of prey, the buzzard and the kestrel, and will talk about the intensive training of the young birds before they are capable of hunting for themselves.

'A Shilling a Child'
Sir WILLIAM BEVERIDGE , K.C.B.
It was just about this time last year that the Government announced important changes in the rates of benefit under the Unemployment Insurance scheme, and since then other developments in unemployment insurance have been made.
Today Sir William Beveridge , whose broadcasts on economic subjects are widely listened to and appreciated, is going to talk about the unemployment insurance problem as it has unravelled itself during the last year. Sir William has very special qualifications for this, as he is Chairman of the Unemployment Insurance Statutory Committee.

: The Village

'The Landlord'
J. L. HAMMOND
This evening J. L. Hammond will try to show how the great difference between conditions in England and those in other countries, where the feudal village existed, is to be found in the character and power of the land-owning class. This class in England, he will point out, is closely connected with the life of commerce and finance, hence it is not a class that cares only for its prestige and its privilege. It shows great energy and public spirit in initiating and spreading improvements, and is anxious to develop agriculture and make it a source of profit. In other countries the town has a check on the power and initiative of the landlord class, but not so in England.
Two questions, among others, that members of listening groups may ask themselves as the result of this talk are (i) Have you anything to quarrel with in the distribution of land-ownership ? (2) Are the landlords as interested in the people of the countryside as they used to be ?

: A Symphony Concert THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section B)
Leader, PAUL BEARD
Conductor, ADRIAN BOULT
Bruckner wrote the Sixth Symphony between 1879 and 1881. It was performed for the first time at one of the Vienna Philharmonic Concerts on February 11, 1883, under the direction of W. Jahn , the successor of Richter to the post of conductor of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. It is noteworthy that this was the first time that one of Bruckner's works was played by this rather conservative orchestra, although Bruckner had already made his name in Vienna as a symphonist. But only the Adagio and Scherzo were given at that performance, and it was not until 1899 that the whole work, but with cuts, was played under Gustav Mahler. Bruckner never heard the third and the last movements of the symphony.
The general character of the symphony, unlike that of the Eighth and Ninth Symphonies, may be described as bright and happy, but with the typical Bruckner touch of solemnity here and there.

' Organisers: What controls the Development of Animals ? '
C. H. WADDINGTON
Tonight C. H. Waddington , who works at the Laboratory of Experimental Zoology at Cambridge, is to describe how and why he works with eggs, and is interested in how an egg grows into a bird, or a newt, or a frog, or a snake, or whatever it may be.
The actual experiments he does nearly all involve grafting little bits of the egg from one place to another. Slow, tedious work, cutting minute particles from minute objects with the aid of a microscope, and making them grow elsewhere..... But it is worth while.
How is it that a simple blob of jelly like a frog's egg develops first an intestine, and then a nervous system and brain, and then muscles and a skeleton, and a tail and legs and arms and so on ? If we knew how the cells of an animal ever do get arranged in an orderly way, perhaps we could stop them from getting out of control.

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.
