Douglas Hawkridge
Douglas Hawkridge , who was born in Derby, received his first church engagement when fourteen years old. At the age of eighteen he entered the Royal Academy of Music on an exhibition, where he studied under Claude Pollard for piano, and Dr. Stanley Marchant for organ. He spent seven years at the Academy, first as a student and later as a sub-' professor.
Hawkridge has done a good deal of broadcasting, having been heard playing from St. Mary-le-Bow in the Savoy Hill days, and also from the old Nottingham station, from which he broadcast a number of piano recitals while still at school.

* 'Take-all' and 'Silver Leaf'
B.A. Keen, F.R.S.
This afternoon Dr. B.A. Keen is going to talk about some of the various fungi that attack fruit and crops, and constitute a grave menace to the farmer and fruit-grower.
Certain fungi are harmless, hut a great many more are dangerous in character and rapid in their action upon otherwise healthy plants. Dr. Keen will discuss the deadly 'take-all' fungus of wheat, describe its life history, and outline the various attempts that have been made to control it. He will treat in a similar way the 'silver leaf' fungus that attacks fruit trees.

: SONG OF THE NIGHTINGALE

broadcast from a Surrey wood
The song of the nightingale is a familiar feature of the woodlands at this time of the year, when it is at its sweetest and most consistent. There have been broadcasts of the nightingale's song in the past, and once again this king of the bird songsters is to be given his chance to sing by radio firesides. Microphones will be placed in a Surrey wood famous for its nightingales.
There will be further nightingale broadcasts on Tuesday and Wednesday during the evening programme.

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.
