: 'IN YOUR GARDEN’

Ⓓ Plants for the Water Garden
C. H. Middleton and R. H. Perry
Once again C. H. Middleton is to bring to the microphone Reginald Perry , son of the famous water-garden specialist, Amos Perry , and a well-known water-garden specialist himself ; and they are to discuss the question of plants most suitable for the water garden and the best way to make a simple ornamental pool for immediate effect.
Few hobbies are more interesting or less troublesome than a well-cared-for pool or aquarium, in which both plant and animal life are properly balanced. Plant life is essential to the life of fish, which add such beauty to the pool. Those who have been to Wisley will remember the lovely water-lily pool on the fringe of the woods.

: Missionary Talk ' OUR CHRISTIAN COLLEGES IN CHINA'

Francis Wei , Ph.D.,
Principal of the Central China
University, Wuchang
Dr. Wei is principal of the Central China University at Wuchang, Hankow, the only centre of Christian Higher Education in a region with a population of one hundred million people. The institution is supported by a number of British and American missionary societies, the London Missionary Society and the Methodist Missionary Society being among them.
Besides being a Chinese scholar of high standing, Dr. Wei is a Ph.D. of London University, and an M.A. of Harvard. He was at one time chairman of the National Christian Council of China, and is now engaged in a lecture tour in this country on behalf of the United Committee for Christian Universities for China. Dr. Wei believes that the Christian Colleges in China should be the best and most efficient educational centres in the country. He is to tell listeners how higher education in general has developed in China during the past, twenty years, and how, despite the difficulties with which China is now faced, plans are still being forwarded.

: Whitefield Commemoration

Bicentenary of the first landing of George Whitefield in North America on May 7, 1738.
An exchange of talks between The Rt. Hon. D. Lloyd George, O.M., M.P. speaking from England, and Harold Willis Dodds, Ph.D., LL.D., Litt.D., President of Princeton University, speaking from America.
On May 7, 1738, George Whitefield landed in America. At once his influence there was as great as it had been in England; in his New England campaign alone, 30,000 persons were said to have been brought into a new and vital religious experience. But what he is most remembered for today across the Atlantic is the fact that out of his work arose many of the first educational institutions in America, notably the Universities of Pennsylvania and Princeton.
Mr. Lloyd George's broadcast will be heard on both sides of the Atlantic, as will the American reply, which will follow immediately.

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.
