' How it strikes me'
Anthony Hurd discusses the problem of British agriculture with a townsman
This evening Anthony Hurd will give the first of a new series of twelve talks in which he will view the agricultural situation, not so much from the point of view of the producer as from that of the salesman and consumer. The people he will bring to the microphone will include a corn merchant, a seed merchant, a country butcher, and a milk distributor, as well as some representative consumers.
In alternate talks he will be alone and will sum up conclusions and discuss the workings of some of the marketing schemes.
It may be remembered that at this time last year Mr. Hurd gave a similar short series in which he introduced at the microphone the chairmen of the various Marketing Boards.

Romanzen aus Tiecks Magelone
(Romances from Tieck's Magelone) sung by George Parker (baritone)
War es dir, dem diese Lippen bebten
('Twas for thee, these lips were burning)
Wir mussen uns trennen (The hour of our parting)
Ruhe, Siissliebchen, im Schatten
(Rest thee, my lady, in shadow)
So tonet denn, schaumende Wellen
(The sea waters roar and surround me)
Wie schnell verschwindet so Licht als Glanz (As fame and power fast fade away)

: Love is On the Air

A programme presented by Reginald Pursglove and his
Orchestra with Virginia Dawn
Isabelle McEwan and Max Oldaker
Compere, Gustave Ferrari
The title of this new short series,. of which this evening's broadcast is the first, is the signature tune of Reginald Pursglove 's Orchestra.
The programmes will be devoted entirely to songs about love, and as these are not hard to find among popular hits both old and new, listeners may look forward to a series of selections in which a good percentage of their favourite tunes will be heard.
Normally Reginald Pursglove's
Orchestra has no vocalist, so they are breaking away from tradition in having three singers for the run of the series.

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.
