2.5 Round the Countryside
What lives in a Pond?
C. C. GADDUM
Mr. Gaddum will talk about some of the common inhabitants of an English pond. He will describe the curious habits of the water-spider, how it builds a nest under the water and fills it with bubbles of air. And finally he will explain how creatures like the water-boatman and water-scorpion can be captured and kept in an aquarium for observation.
Teachers will find it useful to have illustrations or specimens of the water-spider, water-scorpion, and the, common pond leech to show their classes.

More Restrictions on Foreign
Trade
E. F. M. Durbin
Just a year ago a report was received that the U.S.A. were proposing to put a prohibitive tax on imports from Germany because the U.S.A. authorities considered that German goods were unfairly subsidised in foreign markets.
This was only one in a whole series of measures adopted in recent years by a]most every country in the world with a view to safeguarding its own economic stability ; but it was also one of the last of these restrictive measures, for in the last twelve months there has 'been increasing relaxation in the conditions of foreign trade.
What all this means is to be explained this afternoon by E. F. M. Durbin , one of the younger economists, whose recent work has won him the respect of many qualified judges.

: Listening to schools broadcasts: R.C. Steele

Before broadcasting was invented, our information was gleaned from writers and teachers alone, but radio has provided a new source of information altogether and a new way of hearing fine performances.

Excerpts may be read from the printed book, plays may be acted, the best music may be performed, and specialists can talk about their particular subjects to an audience scattered all over the country, who are listening at the same moment. This new means of giving information requires a new technique - the technique of listening. It is about all this that Richard Steele, who is attached to the Central Council for School Broadcasting, will speak today.

His talk is meant mainly for teachers in the schools who listen, but he will not overlook the large number of ordinary adult listeners who, having the leisure, listen regularly to school broadcasts.

A series of talks about the countryside
' Summer Butterflies'
Eric Parker
Is it a fact that the butterflies with which we were familiar in the summers of say, fifty years ago are becoming more scarce ? If so, what are the reasons-drought, increase of building, collectors ? Eric Parker will discuss some butterflies that have become extinct, such as the large copper ; and he will say something about the curious instance of symbiosis-the sharing of life by the large blue butterfly with the ant.

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.
