Trees and Shrubs
Your choice may be a Japanese flowering cherry, an exotic camellia or a eucalyptus - or it might be the native whitebeam or mountain ash. But whatever it is, now is the time to plant your trees and shrubs.
Roy Lancaster is Curator of the world's largest collection of hardy woody plants and knows which give colour in spring and autumn, grow too large, grow quickly, provide a good screen or are just beautiful to look at and easy to look after.

' " Couldn't I stay on here for those few days, while you are on the journey to Kashmir? " Miss Pringle asked. " I could easily catch you up by bus. The club dance . . . "
" Certainly not! All the women and children have to get out of here ... besides, what would people say if you stayed on all alone with the Colonel? "

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.
