How sweet to wander As the watcher longs
I'm in no hurry to marry As dewdrops at morn

The Lord is my shepherd
God is in the thunder storm Where thou reignest

: 'THE AMATEUR HANDYMAN OUT OF DOORS'

' Decorating the Outside of the House'
W. P. Matthew
It takes more than flowers to make a garden. There are paths, fences, gates, and walls to be looked after. Any of these, falling into disrepair, may give the richest garden a look of slovenliness-and so will a shabby house-front. The more useful then is this fortnightly series of practical talks, which are a follow-up to a previous successful series by Mr. Matthew broadcast earlier in the. year. They are aimed primarily at the owner of the small house and garden who either prefers or is obliged to look after all these things for himself. This is the second of a series of five talks, which will alternate with Friday-evening garden talks.

: 'UP AGAINST IT'

' Escape from Capture '
Lieut.-General Sir Tom Bridges ,
K.C.B., K.C.M.G.
General Sir Tom Bridges is to describe an exciting episode in his Army career. In the early days of the Great War-August, 1914-he was involved in the skirmishing between the British Expeditionary Force and the advance sections of the German Army. In one day he twice escaped from capture and then only by the skin of his teeth, after a succession of hairbreadth adventures.
Sir Tom Bridges has had an exceptionally varied career in war and peace. A friend of the Belgian 'Royal Family, he was head of the military mission with the Belgian Army during the war. Later he was Divisional Commander in Flanders, and then twice a member of the British War Missions to the United States of America, where he deputised on more than one occasion for Earl (then Mr.) Balfour ; he ended a distinguished military career with his valuable work as Head of the British Mission, Allied Forces of the Orient. His last important public work was his tenure of the Governorship of South Australia from 1922 to 1927.

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
