PROF: I'm speechless.
PROD: Don't tell that to Stop the Week! And do you know Laurie, that if you take our Junior
Electronics course, you can build and play an electric organ in 80 minutes? Will the professor succeed? Can we look forward to his musical debut on Radio 4? Listen on.... Producer PETER WARD

Producer MICHAEL MASON
The gardens which surround the Castle are superb. However, while the shrubs, roses and great variation of perennials will always excite and delight, as will the new wild garden area that overlooks the 100-year-old lake, the great joy is surely the massive rock garden that was created almost 60 years ago. Today Professor
Alan Gemmell expresses something of the pleasures Sizergh has given him over the years. Producer

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.
