Ⓓ From the Point of View of a Toy Maker
In this interesting series views on children are being expressed by various people who have special relations with them. The firstbroadcast was given by a father, the second by a mother, and today's is to be given by a man who supplies children with toys. He regards it as a special sort of privilege and sees himself in a kind of family relationship with Santa Claus. He will describe how it was that he first became a toy maker and how from that time he has been in close co-operation with mothers and ' nannies ' as to the kind of toys that children want. It is interesting to know that practically all the toys he sells have been suggested by one or the other.


Unknown: Santa Claus.

W. S. Mansfield
W. S. Mansfield , who is giving the farming talks this autumn, is Manager of the Cambridge University Farm. He is very well known to East Anglian farmers, particularly as a breeder of dairy shorthorns and large white pigs. He was a judge of Percheron horses at the Royal Show this year.
The Cambridge University Farm is run on strictly business lines, apart from experiments which take place on it. A certain amount of sugarbeet is grown, but the most interesting thing is the part which is under a system of ' alternate husbandry ' ; that is to say, fields remain down to grass for four years and then are ploughed up again for four years (wheat, wheat, beans, wheat, the last of these being undersown with a simple seeds mixture).
Last week Mr. Mansfield introduced the Minister of Agriculture to listeners ; today he is to introduce himself. He will tell them all about his farm and say something about the broadcast series he is giving, and finally a word or .two about the autumn clearing of the fields.

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.
