' What Insects do—Locusts'
H. B. JOHNSTON
The speaker this morning is one of the world's greatest experts on the locust problem, and recently represented Uganda and Tanganyika at the International Locust Conference in Brussels.
It is probably true that locusts have plagued man as long as he has existed on the earth. They are older than the pyramids or the Stone
Age. While modern methods of fighting them have done a lot to combat the menace in certain parts of the world, they still remain the terror of the hot-country farmer.
There are few creatures that multiply at so astonishing a rate, and the Arabs have a saying to the effect that the locust lays ninety-nine eggs, for if it laid a hundred the world could not contain all the tribe that would be produced.
The speaker will describe some ravages by locusts that he has seen, and will tell you about three particular methods used to combat them.

: MUSIC BY HAYDN WOOD

The BBC Orchestra
(Section C)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by the composer
Overture, Life and Love
Rhapsody, King Orry
Suite, East of Suez
1 Aziza, the Temple Dancer. 2 Moti Lal , the Charmer of Snakes. 3 Susuki, the Geisha
(First Performance)
Variations on a Once Popular
Humorous Song
Once again Haydn Wood comes to the microphone and conducts a programme of his own compositions, including the first performance of a suite ' East of Suez '.
The programme as a whole shows
Haydn Wood in the light of a serious composer. His lightest effort, however, is the ' Variations on a Once-Popular Humorous Song', which was originally written as a musical jest. It is based on a comic song which once enjoyed great popularity -' If you want to know the time, ask a p'liceman '. This tune is subjected to seven variations and a symphonically extended finale. Although the whole work sets out to entertain rather than to uplift, throughout the music is characterised by its fastidious and skilful workmanship.

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.
