' Plant Improvement '
' Manuring and Cultivation '
B. A. KEEN
Dr. Keen is to talk to you about the all-important question of manuring and cultivation, and he will speak of the dangers of over-manuring or giving the soil too much and too rich food. The soil has first to be prepared. It is teeming with multitudes of tiny living organisms—many of them the gardener's best friends, for they bring about chemical changes in the soil and make the various plant foods which the soil contains available for use by the growing crops. But these organisms require certain conditions if they are to thrive, and so we dig.
We dig to let in fresh air and warmth-a process known to gardeners as trenching. Dr. Keen will tell you how the soil has to be supplied with ' humus', or the residue of decaying vegetation or organic matter in the soil. Heavy crops of vegetables exhaust the humus, and it is therefore up to us to keep up the supply. It can take the form of digging in waste vegetation of any kind, or crops specially grown for the purpose ; it can take the form of farm manure ; or it can take the form of artificial fertilisers.

: THE HAIGH MARSHALI STRING ORCHESTRA

Leader, George Stratton
Conductor,
Benjamin Haigh Marshall
Evelyn Rothwell (oboe)
ORCHESTRA
Benjamin Haigh Marshall , the conductor, studied at the Royal Academy of Music. As a student, he formed a small string orchestra to provide incidental music to the dramatic performances. The venture proved so successful that it was enlarged and formed into a permanent professional combination, all the players being drawn from among the young professionals who, like himself, were just beginning their careers. The average age of the orchestra is twenty-three.
10.18 EVELYN ROTHWELL AND
ORCHESTRA
A. S. Arensky (1861-1906), one of the most interesting of minor Russian composers, is known in England chiefly by his pleasant, lyrical chamber music and by his polished miniatures for piano. Though a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, his work is not very remarkable for national flavouring.
The ' Variations on a Theme of Tchaikovsky', in its original form, was scored for violin, viola, and two cellos, a combination producing a suitably elegaic tone colour. It was rearranged for the normal quartet as a more practical ensemble, and was later arranged for string orchestra. The theme is taken from Tchaikovsky's beautiful song, ' Legend ' (' Christ in His Garden ').

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.
