Jonathan's Dig by HADRIAN ROGERS
Now that Jonathan has retired, he is determined to interest himself in all sorts of things. In his eclectic state of mind, vegetable gardening leads quite naturally to archaeology. Unfortunately a full-scale dig in a suburban back garden can cause quite considerable problems, particularly with the neighbours.

It's Called Life by MEG SEATON Read by Ysanne Churchman
' You'll miss London. You always were a town sparrow.'
Emily bent low over the tea chest as she arranged a few ornaments and pictures. London could shrink into the palm of her hand, she could squeeze it and throw it away and never care.
All she would miss was Ken, his clumsy hands, his silly amiable face, his laugh.

The story of Ruth Draper and an anti-Fascist gesture
It is an improbable chain which could connect Ruth Draper , the American solo actress and creator of characters, with Mussolini. The link was Lauro de Bosis, a young Italian poet and royalist anti-Fascist and Ruth Draper 's lover, who in 1931 undertook a courageous act of defiance against Mussolini by flying over Rome to drop leaflets.
Hallam Tennyson narrates the events which led him to make this gesture, and its consequences. Other parts played by PEGGY PAIGE , EVE KARPF LOLLY COCKERELL ROGER HAMMOND

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.
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.
