: Hints for the Housewife

This is the first broadcast in a short series to be given today and on November 10 and 17. In each broadcast there will be three speakers, all of whom have broadcast before in At Home Today '. They will speak on subjects useful to housewives. For instance, today's three talks will be on how to clean copper or brass easily, how to effect furniture repairs, and how to take care of leather. The one woman speaker among them, Mrs. Ingillson, has broadcast cooking talks with considerable success.

Round the Countryside
' Rats and Voles '
When a harmless creature like the water vole bears a strong resemblance in size and shape and colour to an injurious creature like the rat, it seems a pity that it should be called by everyone a water rat. It is not a water rat, it is not a rat at all. The water vole has a flatter and broader head, and smaller eyes and ears, than the rat; it is a vegetarian. These and other differences will be pointed out by C. C. Gaddum in his talk today, and he will show how it is quite easy to distinguish one from the other if you watch carefully.
He will discuss the exodus of the rats from towns and cities in the summer and will tell listeners how rats then persecute water voles. Finally he will have something to say about the unfortunate introduction of the so-called 'musk-rat' into England, and about the increasing amount of damage the ' musk-rat ' is doing.
Teachers will find it helpful to have illustrations of the rat, the water vole, and the ' musk-rat ' to show their class.

: Scientists at Work

' Colours in Flowers '
Dr. Rose Scott Moncrieff , who is on the staff of the John Innes Horticultural Institution, at Wimbledon, is a biochemist, whose particular job is to study colour in flowers. She has a laboratory in the middle of a large experimental flower and fruit garden, run for the purpose of studying the law of heredity in plants. What conditions in flowers are necessary for the production of particular colours ? With the exception of the hydrangea, the colour of flowers is not much influenced by soil. We do not know how delphiniums and cornflowers achieve their superb blue.
She grades flowers in order of colour, and will explain just what she does day after day throughout the season, and just why she does it. And, though she is a scientist, and her interest is scientific, she never ceases to be thrilled by the sheer beauty of flowers.

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.
