: IN YOUR GARDEN

© C. H. Middleton
The English idea of a salad is far too often a bowl of lettuce with a slice of beetroot and a tired egg. Yet the vegetable ingredients of the delicious French salads may be grown in everyman's garden-endive and corn salad, chicory and purslain, carrots and cress.
Today C. H. Middleton is to bring to the microphone E. R. Janes , celebrated for his exhibition of vegetables as well as flowers at the leading shows for a world-famous seed firm; and Mr. Janes is to tell listeners how to keep the salad bowl going with infinite variety through the summer months, with a special word on the growing of tomatoes.

Conductor,
B. Walton O'Donnell
Malcolm McEachern (baritone)
In 1872 Bizet composed a charming series of twelve little pieces for piano duet, which was entitled ' Jeux d'enfants '. Though conceived with the utmost simplicity of melody and harmony, these pieces are delicately pictorial. The music is about children rather than for children.
During the following year Bizet took five of the pieces and scored them for orchestra. Sir Frederic Cowen conducted the suite for the first time in London at a Philharmonic Concert in 1888.

: THE CHURCH OF TOMORROW - 4

Answers to Listeners' Questions
Kenneth Ingram
Last month Kenneth Ingram , author of such significant books as ' The Changing Order 'Has the Church failed ? ', ' The Church of Tomorrow ', and ' The Coming Civilisation', gave three talks on the new expression of Christianity that has been produced by the pressure of world events, that views the spiritual and material as a unity, and claims that religion is unfulfilled if it fails to establish a Christian civilisation in our time. He has discussed fully the possibility, and the implications, of such a revival, and has received a very large number of letters from listeners, whose questions he will answer in his broadcast talk this afternoon.

: 'ALL FOR LOVE'

or ' The World well Lost'
A Tragedy,
As it was Acted at the Theatre Royal
And Written in Imitation of Shakespeare's Stile
By John Dryden , Servant to His
Majesty
Freely adapted for broadcasting and produced by Peter Creswell
Music from contemporary sources arranged and conducted by Julian Herbage
With a New Prologue and Epilogue specially written by Peter Creswell , spoken by the Poet's descendant, Mr.
Noel Dryden
The Persons Represented in the Tragedy:
(By permission of Maurice Colbourne and Barry Jones )
(By permission of Howard Wyndham and Brouson Albery )
Roman and Egyptian Soldiers, Servants to Anthony, Slaves, Priests of Isis, etc., etc.
Three years ago Peter Creswell , of The King's Tryall fame, produced a radio version of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra; this afternoon he is to produce on the air Dryden's. version of the same story. In writing All for Love Dryden abandoned the rhymed couplet for Shakespeare's unrhymed blank verse. Because Creswell feels that it does not bear comparison with Shakespeare's play, he has made a special feature of reproducing the atmosphere and whole feeling of a Restoration playhouse, when you could not hear yourself speak for the cries of hucksters before the curtain went up. He has been digging out some old huckster cries at the British Museum, and has himself written both Prologue and Epilogue ; also a hymn to Isis which will be sung to Purcell's music.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of the LADY CHICHESTER HOSPITAL, HOVE, by a former patient of the hospital —ELSPETH DOUGLAS-REID , who will be introduced by CHRISTOPHER STONE
The Lady Chichester Hospital-a pioneer hospital, founded in 1905-treats cases of early nervous disorders among men, women, and children. No letters of admission are required ; the hospital has a large children's ward and out-patients' clinic ; and those who are unable to pay anything are admitted free. There is an urgent need to extend the men's department and to increase the facilities of the child-guidance clinic.
This cannot be done until the hospital is freed from the burden of a debt of over £8,000.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Countess of Chichester, [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.
