Everyone must have a holiday, and C. H. Middleton is no exception to this rule. His place on Sunday afternoons will be taken for the next twelve weeks by a varied selection of broadcasters, who will talk about some of the things that they have seen in other people's gardens. The talks will not be technical, but will be planned to give hints and ideas on garden planning, design, plant arrangement, and so on.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE BRITISH SAILORS' SOCIETY by REGINALD FOORT
The British Sailors' Society was founded in 1818 and serves the needs of the men of the Mercantile Marine, their widows, orphans, and dependents.
It maintains and educates sailors' orphans ; trains boys for the sea at its Prince of Wales Sea Training School ; prepares students at its King Edward VII Nautical School for Officers ; gives relief to distressed seafarers and their dependents, and provides Ocean Libraries for sailors, and the men of lighthouses and light-ships. £2,000 per week is the cost of maintenance of these essential services.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Reginald Foort , Esq., [address removed]

: Letter from America: 1

Alexander Woollcott
(From America)
One of America's 'ace' broadcasters, renowned for the easy and informal way with which he talks to American audiences on things as they occur to him, Alexander Woollcott is giving tonight the first of a series of six broadcasts to British listeners. He has been heard on British radio twice during the last few months, once on Boxing Day when he gave a talk on Stephen Foster, the composer of 'Swanee River', and on Wednesday last when he gave an illustrated talk on Irving Berlin. Further details about him will be found on page 6.
His talks will be informal, and will consist of a weekly commentary on things that have recently interested him in the United States.

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.
