: Round the Countryside ' Snakes' C. C. GADDUM

Mr. Gaddum will try to dispel the illusion that all snakes are dangerous and should be killed at sight. He will describe the harmless grass snake and tell listeners how they can distinguish it from the adder, which is the only dangerous snake in the British Isles. Finally he will talk about the adder, and will endeavour to prove that it is not so bad as it is often painted. Teachers will find it helpful to have illustrations of a grass snake, and an adder or viper, to show their classes.

' Women at Work'
Ray Strachey
The true place of women in business and the professions is still a matter of controversy, but this time last year the French Government made an interesting contribution to the subject by appointing three women as Under-Secretaries of State. Mrs. Strachey will discuss the significance of these appointments, and will describe some of the problems facing the woman who earns her own living. She has had long experience on various appointment boards of the conditions met with by women who work, and of their difficulties; and is therefore able to take a practical view of things as they are.

Leader, Daniel Mclsa
Conductor, Eric Fogg
When Schubert died, his Unfinished Symphony, which had never been performed during his lifetime, lay hidden somewhere in the town of Gratz, of whose Musical Society Schubert was a member. It was for this Society that he is supposed to have composed the B minor Symphony. Ultimately, after years of fruitless search, the manuscript of the Unfinished Symphony was found.
Why it remained ' unfinished ', or whether, indeed, the composer's ultimate intention was ever to finish it at all, can never be known. We do know, however, that it was the work of a new Schubert, a genius for the first time probing the remoter depths of a mature imagination.

A series of talks about the countryside
'Snakes '
Eric Parker
What are the chief differences between a snake and a lizard? Is there any truth in the assertion that adders will swallow their young to protect them from danger? To what size will a grass snake grow, and why do these snakes occasionally congregate in large numbers ? These are some of the questions that Eric Parker will answer this evening.

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.
