: April to June: Dragonflies and Mayflies

A series of talks about the countryside
Eric Parker
Eric Parker will discuss the different stages in the life of the dragonfly and will describe the various species. Why are they all called simply dragonflies? Why have the different species never been given different English names as butterflies have? Then he will deal with mayflies - speak of their life circle, and explain why we know so little about their early stages. Are mayflies decreasing?

: AMERICA TODAY

Agriculture
The First Big Business
R. I. James
The depression that has affected American agriculture for many years past, and the concentration of interest on industry with its greater financial rewards, has made us forget that the original ' big business' of America was the conquest of the land and the agricultural exploitation of its wealth, and that the spiritual ancestor of the present business man was the nineteenth-century agriculturist.
In this the second talk of the series, Mr. R. I. James , who is Lecturer in American History in the University of Bristol, will discuss the way in which American character, often imagined to be the product of too great devotion to ' big business', was historically formed long before the Industrial Revolution in the United States of America.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
