: IN YOUR GARDEN

C. H. Middleton and F. H. Grisewood
It is hoped that this discussion between C. H. Middleton and F. H. Grisewood will be the first of a monthly series, and will introduce to listeners not only the problems of a struggling amateur gardener, but two popular microphone personalities in discussion together.
Listeners may remember that
Grisewood used to live in the Cotswolds ; ;. that he had a ready-made garden there to play with, and did so to his heart's content, with the help of ' Our Bill'. '. But he now lives in Surrey, under the Hog's Back, where he has three acres of land, and his problem is to make a garden out of a field.
He will ask Middleton's advice on the kind of problems that arise-digging, soil, fertilisers, that age-old question of a lawn, bulbs, roses, and so on. Would he had ' Our Bill ' to help him! Who knows? - he may. The Cotswolds aren't so far from
Surrey, after all.

: Ernest Milton

in ' THE MERCHANT
OF VENICE' by William Shakespeare
Ibsen, Pirandello, Galsworthy, Shakespeare - in plays by each, Ernest Milton has won laurels, hut to Shakespeare he has returned again and again. As a boy, he saw As You Like It performed in the open air, in the Greek Theatre at the University of California, and it made him resolve to go on the stage. In his twenties he played in the Trial scene from The Merchant of Venice to the Portia of Ellen Terry , and it was but a prelude to a lifetime's association with the play. He has appeared as Shylock at the Old Vie in 1918 ; with the Old Vic Company at the Theatre du Pare, Brussels, in 1921 ; in Egypt, with Robert Aitken , in 1927 ; at the Old Vic in 1928 ; and under his own management at the St. James's Theatre in 1932. This afternoon he is to broadcast in the part which he knows so well, and listeners who are interested to read how he intends to play it on the air, can do so by turning to his article on page 9.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE ROYAL EYE HOSPITAL,
SOUTHWARK by Christopher Stone ,D.S.O.,M.C.
The Royal Eye Hospital, which is the only one of its kind in South London, was established eighty years ago, and has served over a million poor people.
The treatment of some 6,000 new cases annually of children suffering from external eye disease is handicapped by the absence'of appropriate In-Patient accommodation to supplement the work in the OutPatients' Department.
The new Hospital, which will be the finest of its kind in the Empire, will provide not only a larger OutPatients' Department, but also Children's Wards.
The site of the Old Surrey Theatre has been purchased, and it is hoped that construction on the new building will begin this year.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Christopher Stone , Esq., D.S.O., M.C., [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.

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.
