Children and the Police
Manchester
T. A. HIGSON ,

2.5 Round the Country-side
' Early Spring Flowers '
C. C. GADDUM
This broadcast will deal with spring flowers, the reason why certain flowers choose to bloom at this time of year instead of waiting for the summer weather, and how they are able to get sufficient food to enable them to flower and set their seed. The dearth of insects in early spring is a serious handicap to most flowers, but the speaker will explain how it is overcome. Finally, he will invite listeners to form their own opinions on the question of why most spring flowers are white or yellow.

2.30 English Literature-2
' Henry IV ' (Part 1)
HARCOURT WILLIAMS
This production will follow the precedent set when The Tempest was broadcast to Schools in linking up scenes with narrative, which has been written and will be spoken by Harcourt Williams , who will also play Owen Glendower. Listeners are to hear the story of stirring times in England told in stirring verse by England's greatest poet. (The Falstaff scenes will be given next week.)
The precis of the plot is this:
About four years before the play opens, Bolingbroke has deposed and murdered Richard 11 and usurped the throne as Henry IV. But his reign is not peaceful, for the Scots and the Welsh invade England. In the north, on Henry's behalf, Hotspur defeats the Scottish lords, but in the west Glendower has captured Henry's kinsman, Edmund Mortimer.
When Henry refuses to ransom
Mortimer, the Percys (Northumberland and his son, Hotspur) thinking they have a grievance against the king whom they have helped to the throne, plan a rebellion, aiming at putting Mortimer in Henry's place. The rebels meet the king's forces at Shrewsbury, where Henry's son ' Harry ' proves that a young man may sow his wild oats and yet be brave by defeating in single combat Hotspur, whom he knows to be the bravest man in England.

: ROOM FOR EXPANSION?

Concerning the Small Family, its Causes and Consequences
A Discussion
This new series is to deal with one of the major problems of the future -the trend in world population and the significance of some of its causes and effects. It would seem that in Europe small families are the chief single cause of the fall in population and of the growing disparity between young and old. Is the reason for this economical, or is it social?
The series opens with a debate.
On the one hand will be heard T. H Marshall , Reader in Sociology at the London School of Economics (who will take part in each broadcast in the series), and, side by side with him, another expert, D. H. McLach lan, author of articles on population in The Times. On the other hand listeners are to hear three people who are not experts, who are only too well acquainted with some of the reasons deterring married couples from having large families.

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.
