: 'IN YOUR GARDEN'

(g) C. H. Middleton
This is the time of year when, once you have "dug your last parsnip and cleared your plot, it is easy to let things alone. But the diligent and far-seeing gardener will be thinking of the spring. He knows well enough that beneficial as manure may be, the condition of the soil is just as important as its food contents; he knows that the soil of his garden is teeming with millions of living organisms, many of which are his best friends, for they do a most useful work in bringing about chemical changes in the soil and rendering the various plant foods that it contains available for use by the growing crops. But these organisms must be allowed to thrive and give of their best, and that is why he starts digging.
C. H. Middleton in his talk today will explain why ' trenching' is essential ; and, that done, he will go on to discuss the question of manuring.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Sigurd Rascher (saxophone)
It is only of late years that the saxophone has begun to be considered seriously as a solo instrument. In dance bands and military bands the name of the saxophone is legion, but it is rarely, indeed, that its beautiful possibilities as a solo instrument are heard in recital or on the concert platform. Sigurd Rascher , who can well claim to be one of the most outstanding virtuosos of the instrument, has made a considerable name for himself, particularly in America, for his beautiful playing of serious music specially written or arranged for his instrument.
For many years Eric Coates has admired Sigurd Rascher 's playing. Consequently, in 1936, he decided to write a special work for him. Coates's Saxo-Rhapsody was given its first performance with Rascher as soloist and the composer as conductor at the Folkestone Musical Festival in September, 1936. It was then given its first broadcast performance with Rascher as soloist and Joseph Lewis as conductor in January of this present year.

: 'GREAT OCCASIONS IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS'

The Reform Bill
Readers, Igor Vinogradoff and Felix Aylmer
The Bill which killed the old unrepresentative House of Commons was introduced on March 1, 1831. Thus started the greatest struggle in the political history of Britain. The Government had been defeated three times and had had to appeal to the country and threaten the House of Lords before, fifteen months later, the Bill became law after a terrific popular agitation.
Listeners will be taken into the old chapel of St. Stephen's, where the House of Commons used to meet before 1834. They will hear a passage from the famous introductory speech with which Lord John Russell shook the House, and some of the eloquence with which a new member, Thomas Babington Macau lay, captured the imaginations of his hearers.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE ROYAL
CANCER HOSPITAL (FREE) by The Rt. Hon. Lord RUSSELL OF KILLOWEN
The object of this appeal on behalf of the Royal Cancer Hospital (Free) is to raise funds for additional wards that are very urgently needed ; the enlargement of the Nurses' Home ; additional laboratories where scientific investigations of the disease can be better carried out; and the general maintenance of the hospital.
It costs approximately E60,000 per annum to maintain, which is nearly 3s. 6d. a minute, and at present it bears the burden of an overdraft of £20,000 at the bank.
Accommodation at the hospital is provided for those who cannot afford to pay for their maintenance and treatment, as well as for those who can afford to pay for the privacy of a private room.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

A radio fantasy on an old folk tale by Francis Dillon but he has crossed out the word ' fantasy ' in red ink and replaced it with ' squib Listeners may anticipate, therefore, that The Shirt has a sting in its tale
The story concerns a rich and powerful king who, at the end of the fifth year of his reign, fell into a deep and unassailable melancholy. Every effort is made by magicians, jesters, and even crooners to make him laugh-but in vain.
One day, however ...

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.
