: In Your Garden

@ C. H. MlDDLETON
This afternoon C. H. Middleton is to bring to the microphone Reginald Perry , son of the famous water garden specialist, Amos Perry , and a well-known water garden specialist himself; and they are to discuss the laying out and cultivation of water gardens, or ornamental pools.
Few hobbies are more interesting or less troublesome than a well-eared-for pool or aquarium, in which both plant and animal life are properly balanced. Plant life is essential to the life of fish, which add such beauty to the pool. Listeners will hear about the plants they should get for ponds or lakes and those they should avoid, like the duck-weeds and azolla which spread too rapidly and cover the water like a carpet. Those who have been to Wisley will remember the lovely water-lily pool on the fringe of the woods.

From the Horse Guards Parade,
Whitehall
This is the seventh annual Service to be held in memory of the 2,000 British Jews who laid down their lives in the War. The opening Prayer has been especially written by the Chief Rabbi for the 1936 Service. The Memorial Prayer is traditional. The ' Kaddish ' is a Prayer for the Dead and is in essence a Glorification of God and His Kingdom. An interesting feature is the singing by the whole congregation of ' The Adon Olam ' (Lord of the Universe) accompanied by the Band of H.M. Scots Guards. This ancient hymn is the best known and most popular in the Hebrew Liturgy.
Before the service,
Field-Marshal Lord Milne will inspect the Parade, and there will be a march to the Cenotaph.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE BRITISH
LEGION by Major-General Sir FREDERICK MAURICE , K.C.M.G., C.B., President
The British Legion was formed by the late Field-Marshal Earl Haig in 1921 to look after the interests of ex-Service men of all ranks and their families. Its activities include a pension fund for prematurely aged ex-Service men and women, the maintenance of workshops, a sanatorium and village settlement for tuberculous ex-Service men, a housing scheme for the disabled and schemes for the assistance of war orphans. In addition, the Legion has an employment organisation finding over 50,000 jobs each year.
The benevolent work of the Legion is entirely dependent upon voluntary support, and the bulk of its income is derived from the annual Remembrance Day sale of Poppies. Ex-Service men of the Great War are growing older. Their needs become yearly more acute and the ever-increasing demands upon the Legion's financial resources call this year for more generous public support than ever before. The appeal is to be made by the Legion's President.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.
