Autumn Gardening
After the long drought, gardeners are finding themselves with unusual problems and worries as they prepare their gardens for the winter. What treatment do the parched lawns need? What about trees and shrubs that appear withered and shrivelled? What planting can be undertaken in the dry ground? And should some thought be given to methods of conserving water in case the same thing happens next year?
Put your questions to the two experts, Frances Perry and Arthur Billitt.
In the Chair Jill Burridge
Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

Bridge and Blue Gentians by IRIS MACFARLANE
Read by Mary Wimbush
' She thought a lot in metaphors now; the rope of seven strands that tied her to her desires, the ocean into which she, the dewdrop, would eventually melt ... She murmured words like " blessed void" or "eternal sleep" as she sliced and peeled, and squirted liquid on the window panes.'

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
