: 'PORTRAIT OF MY

@ MOTHER'
Mrs. F. Bennett
Here is a talk by the one daughter of a woman who had ten children. She was born in Yorkshire, and went into service. When she married, the land-owner who had employed her built her a house. There she founded her family. Three of her sons never came back from the war. The remaining six are all alive, and all doing well in various parts of the world. They were all afraid of her, and all adored her. It is the daughter's recollection of an individual woman, of some of her sayings and doings that mattered so much to those who were dear to her, that listeners are to hear this morning.

' Plant Growth'
' Training and Pruning of Young
Fruit-trees and Bushes'
C. F. LAWRANCE
This is the first broadcast in this series this term by C. F. Lawrance , who speaks from the point of view of a garden expert (just as Dr. Keen speaks about gardening from the point of view of a scientist). Today Mr. Lawrance is going to tell you why pruning is necessary, and he will speak of factors which influence the growth and which must be taken into account when pruning. He will speak especially of the training and pruning of young fruit trees and bushes, and will discuss the shaping of the tree and the tools required. Finally he will speak of the difference between winter pruning and summer pruning.

: THE BERNARD CROOK QUINTET

Four Interludes (The Beggar's Opera)
Frederick Austin
Bernard Crook won an open scholarship for the piano in 1914. After a season or two of recitals in London and the provinces, he went on tour through the British Isles and later with Pavlova in a season of International Celebrity Concerts. He owes much of his success to his belief that light music should be played with style and with the finesse of a chamber music performance. In keeping with this belief he selects the members of his Quintet principally for their achievements as chamber music players.

' Stories for Films ’
Angus MacPhail
Interlocutor, Herbert Hodge
For some people the story is the most important part of a film. It is certainly one of the main anxieties of those who are responsible for making films to get hold of good stories and find out what makes a story suitable for treatment on the screen. Few can know more about this side of the industry than Angus MacPhail , who wrote scripts for the Gainsborough Studios before joining Gaumont-British in an advisory capacity when Michael Balcon went to them as a producer (it will be remembered that the latter broadcast in this series a week or two ago). At Gaumont-British MacPhail was responsible for story material and supervised the development of the scripts. His talk today on the story angle will be listened to with interest.

: BROADCAST ANTHOLOGY

Court Poetry the first of six readings of poems chosen by James Stephens and read by James Stephens and Christopher Salmon
The author of ' A Crock of Gold' is surely the most distinguished living Irish poet after W. B. Yeats , and the news that James Stephens is compiling his own anthology of poetry is of front-rank interest to poetry lovers. Today, and in five subsequent broadcasts during the spring, he will read some of his selections at the microphone, assisted by Christopher Salmon.

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.
