: IN YOUR GARDEN

Ⓓ C. H. Middleton
Many listeners will look forward to another discussion between those two big broadcasting personalities, F. H. Grisewood , the enthusiastic amateur gardener, and C. H. Middleton , the professional, ever ready to give sound advice.
It will be remembered that
Grisewood has made himself a garden in Surrey out of a piece of meadow, and in six broadcasts, the last of which was given in July, he asked Middleton's advice on some of the difficulties he has had to face. Today he will put to him some of the problems that have cropped up since, and any other questions he has time to ask concerning winter in the garden and the outlook for the spring.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Julian Clifford
Lalo's Symphony in G minor is dedicated to his friend Charles Lamoureux , the founder of the famous Concerts Lamoureux, which are still a feature of Parisian musical life. It was first performed at one of these concerts with Lamoureux conducting, on February 13, 1887, and was very favourably received. The music is straightforward and clear, and a good example of Lalo's orchestral style.

: MISSIONARY TALK

' Forty-five years in Labrador '
The Rev. W. W. Perrett
The Moravians were the first to send missionaries to the slaves in the West Indies, their pioneers arriving there in 1731, and today their missionaries are engaged in quiet but important and effective work in many parts of the world. As long ago as 1771 they started work among the Eskimos of Labrador.
Today's speaker is a Moravian missionary who has just retired after forty-five years' work there. He will speak of his experiences ; of the religious, educational, and social endeavours of the mission ; and of the isolation in which he and his companions worked on these bleak coasts for so long-an isolation that is being mitigated to some extent by modern inventions such as wireless communication.

: 'GREAT OCCASIONS IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS'

Mr. Asquith and the House of Lords
Readers : Igor Vinogradoff and Felix Aylmer
The greatest parliamentary struggle within living memory began in November 1909, with the rejection of Mr. Lloyd George 's budget by the House of Lords. Mr. Asquith's Liberal Government took up the constitutional challenge and for twenty-one months war to ' the knife and fork' was waged against the peers. After two fiercely contested elections and the death of King Edward VII the Parliament Act was at last introduced in February, 1911 : its purpose was to confine the Lords to a suspensory veto upon legislation.
Tile Lords amended it out of all recognition, and Mr. Asquith then played his last card, with the threat to create five hundred peers, if necessary, so as to pass the bill. He was shouted down in furious scenes in the House of Commons, and on August 7 a vote of censure was moved on the Government. Listeners will hear something of the dramatic verbal duel which took place that night between those two great parliamentarians, Balfour and Asquith.

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.
