: CHILDREN

Ⓓ From the Point of View of a Mother
In the second of a new series of twelve talks, in which various people are to give their views on children, listeners are to hear the point of view of a mother of four boys, aged seven, five, three, and one-and-a-half years. She will talk about her dreams before the first was born, and of her realisation. They are happy and sturdy, with a hundred acres of farm to play in, even if they have to wear each other's clothes, and the new pram, 2s. 6d. second-hand, has a ' dangerous list to port'. She believes that children should be free. to play, work, and create their own magical life in the fairyland of childhood, but within certain limitations. She will give her views on discipline, training, and so forth, and speak of her ambitions for her boys.

: FARMING TODAY

Grassland Improvement
The Rt. Hon. W. S. Morrison , M.C., Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries introduced by W. S. Mansfield
The new Minister of Agriculture, formerly Financial Secretary to the Treasury, has been responsible for the inauguration of a new fertility campaign, whereby basic slag and lime are being subsidised to farmers in order to improve the general condition of the grassland of the country. Money spent judiciously on the improvement of pastures is a good investment for the farmers and the nation.
Tonight the Rt. Hon. W. S. Morrison will make a statement to farmers, and be introduced by W. S. Mansfield, manager of Cam-bridge University Farm, who is giving the present series of farming talks and is himself an exponent of grassland improvement.

: THE COMPANY OF HEAVEN'

A programme specially devised for
Michaelmas by R. Ellis Roberts
With music specially written by Benjamin Britten
Production by Robin Whitworth with Robert Speaight
Felix Aylmer
Leo Genn
Singers Sophie Wyss
Peter Pears
The BBC Chorus (Section B)
The BBC Orchestra (Section C)
Conducted by Trevor Harvey
From the Scriptures, from old authors, from poets of yesterday and today have been chosen a few of the passages in which they profess that behind the universe are Powers unseen, whose work is the adoration of God, and, at His bidding, the service of Man. To English people, their names, old in tradition, are known mainly from the Bible and from John Milton 's ' Paradise Lost '. This is the Festival of Archangels and Angels-from whom Man has learnt the song of Adoration.

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.
