Interlude
2.5 Science and Gardening
' Garden Pests and their Control'
C. H. MIDDLETON
Last week C. H. Middleton discussed some of the pests and diseases of fruit trees. Today he will deal with the enemies of vegetables and other garden plants. In earlier talks this term Dr. Keen told you that some insects are excellent friends of the gardener, while others are relentless enemies. Mr. Middleton will impress upon you the importance of distinguishing between them.
In the same way birds can be friends or enemies, too ; and the worst of it is that the same species of bird can be both. Mr. Middleton will tell you how to scare birds from crops ; how to protect young fruit trees from the nibbling of rabbits ; how to trap slugs and wireworms, and destroy woodlice-and the greenfly that attacks roses, and the black fly that attacks the broad bean. He will discuss potato blight, the common brown potato scab, and club root that destroys the cabbage family.

: A Sonata Recital

Norina Semino (violoncello)
John Pauer (pianoforte)
Ernest Pauer was born in Vienna in 1826 and died there in 1905. Among his professors for the piano was the son of Mozart, and for harmony and counterpoint he studied under Sechter. During his lifetime Pauer made a great name for himself as a pianist and teacher, and in his leisure moments he was also able to write a considerable number of compositions, which included operas, orchestral works, chamber music, and numerous educational works.
It is interesting to note that the pianist this afternoon is a grandson of Ernest Pauer.

' Leisure between Pictures in Hollywood'
Evelyn Hall
Evelyn Hall acted in London with Lillah McCarthy and at the Gaiety, Manchester, under the aegis of Miss Horniman. She made her first real success on the stage as Chorus in Hyppolytus, and afterwards played Candida and so met Bernard Shaw.
It was while she was acting in New York with Godfrey Tearle that Mary Pickford made her an offer to come to Hollywood. She was there for five years, had an apartment at the Chateau Marmont, met Charles Chaplin , acted with Norma Shearer , Joan Crawford , H. B. Warner and many other celebrities, and so had a first-hand knowledge of life in Hollywood which she is to talk about 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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
