Interlude
2.5 Round the Countryside
Nature's Story-book:
6—' Summer Again '
W. W. WILLIAMS
A few months ago Watkin Williams took his listeners for an imaginary walk round the countryside, showing them how to find out what some of the animals had been doing by looking out for the evidence or ' sign ' that they left behind them ; he suggested that the understanding of this 'sign' was rather like learning to read the printed words on the page of a book. Today Mr. Williams will again talk about the footprints, traces of fur and feather and so forth, left by animals, with special reference to the type of ' sign ' that may be found in the countryside at this time of year.

' Birds that Change their Habits '
Eric Parker
Within the memory of middle-aged persons certain birds have changed their habits, among them swallows, martens, wood pigeons, carrion crows, starlings, gulls. An old name for the swallow, for instance, was chimney swallow, but the bird no longer nests in the wide chimneys of olden days but on beams in outhouses and elsewhere. Wood pigeons abound in London parks and carrion crows in the suburbs where they are safe from the gamekeeper ; starlings roost in London, and sea gulls become inland birds in the winter. Have these birds changed their habits in order to conform with the surroundings and conditions of the lives of human beings? Eric Parker will try to answer that question today.

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.
