'Restoring a home to water birds, a fen mere re-created in Cambridgeshire '
J. Wentworth Day
The reclaiming of marshland in the eastern counties of England which has gone on through the centuries has been an excellent thing for everything but the marshland birds that used to inhabit it. Today the late editor of Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News is to tell listeners about the success he has already achieved in re-creating marshland out of a piece of land he inherited in Cambridgeshire. The bittern, among other interesting birds, has already come back.
Wentworth Day, who has recently returned from Egypt, where he advised the Egyptian Government on the preservation of birds, gave a talk last week on his experiences out there.

In November, 1870, Brahms's friend, C. F. Pohl , author of the great standard biography of Haydn, showed him a curious and little-known work by the eighteenth-century master: a Feldpartita in B flat written in the 1780's for Prince Esterhazy's military band. It is scored for two oboes, two horns, three bassoons, and serpent. Brahms was immediately impressed by the work, but the variations by which he made that Chorale one of the world's best known melodies were not written till the summer of 1873. 8.20 Pianoforte Concerto No. 1, in D minor

Allan Ferguson
The annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science opens today at Cambridge and lasts until August 24.

Four talks on four of the lectures, or on the subject of the lectures, have been arranged. They will be broadcast from a special studio in Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
Tonight a well-known broadcaster,
Dr. Allan Ferguson , Professor of Physics at Queen Mary's College and one of the General Secretaries of the British Association, will give his impression of the opening of the meeting and of Lord Rayleigh's presidential address on the subject of ' Natural vision and vision aided by science '.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
