Ⓓ From page 9 of 'New Every Morning'

: JANUARY DAYS IN THE COUNTRY

Julian Tennyson
As you look round you in January it would seem that everything is done for, that the trees and hedges will never throw out a leaf again, the grass come green or the birds Sing. Yet everywhere, if you look close enough, all kinds of things not very apparent are happening. This is to be the theme of Julian Tenny son talk-he will discuss birds especially. His articles in the Times,
Country Life, and the Field are well known for their country flavour.

' The Story of Mahommed '
HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
1 Great is Allah! Great is Allah
I bear witness that there is no God but Allah,
I bear witness that Mahommed is the prophet of Allah.
Come unto prayer. Come unto
Happiness.
Great is Allah Great is Allah!
There is no God but Allah.
Prayer is better than sleep, Prayer is better than sleep.'
This was the cry of a new religion which sprang up in the East about 600 years after Christ, and soon became one of the leading religions ol the world. You will hear today the story of Mahommed, the camel-driver, and the new things that he taught, and how he founded a new faith.

' Food Chains '
H. MUNRO Fox , F.R.S.
Animals either feed on plants or else they feed on other animals which eat plants. Often there are chains of animals, each link in the chain feeding on the next link, while the last animal link in the chain eats plants. For instance, lions eat zebras, and zebras eat grass. In fresh water, tiny pond-weeds are eaten by water-fleas which are the food of minnows, while minnows are eaten by trout, and trout in turn are gobbled up by herons. Animals which kill and eat others are usually bigger than their prey, but the prey are usually more numerous than the animals which eat them. This is an outline of the talk that Professor Munro Fox is to give today.

: 'FARMING TODAY'

' Successful Farming'
W. S. Mansfield
Successful farming is a problem that has exercised the human mind since the dawn of history. At all times and in all ages there have been people who have been successful in the fickle art of agriculture. Today Mr. Mansfield is to discuss this subject in relation to present-day ideas. It is his farewell talk so far as this series is concerned. A great number of listeners will miss his talks on Wednesday evenings, but he has once again to devote his whole attention to the interests of the Cambridge University School of Agriculture. He will be followed next week by another popular broadcaster, Anthony Hurd.

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.
