In the last of the series, Marjorie Lofthouse meets The Observer's food expert Jane Grigson , author of a collection of eminently readable cookbooks whose pages are a lyrical appreciation of good food. In her award-winning Vegetable Book she says of the cabbage, 'as a vegetable it has original sin and needs improvement. It can smell foul in the pot, linger through the house with pertinacity, and ruin a meal with its wet flab.
Cabbage also has a nasty history of being good for you.' Producer JULIA PARKER BBC Birmingham

The sound of the vicar blowing his own trumpet greets Brian Johnston when he arrives in East Leake in Nottinghamshire. It's an eight-foot 'shawm', once used as a megaphone to publish the banns of marriage.
Elsewhere in the village they have other things to shout about, like a museum in a garden shed and bell-ropes which stretch half-way round the world.

The first of ten reports on the Irish arts scene
The Davey Voyage
The composer Shaun Davey was born in Belfast in 1948. His music first came to public attention in 1977 when he wrote the songs for Stewart Parker 's
Catchpenny Twist. Since then he has written music extensively for television and radio. His first major work for orchestra was 'The Brendan Voyage', completed in 1980. In this he attempted to break down the rigid dividing line that usually exists between 'serious' and 'popular' music by mixing his original composition with traditional Irish folk tunes. He has continued this style in the latest orchestral suite
'Granuale', based on the 16th-century Irish woman pirate Grace O'Malley.
Shaun Davey talks to John Fairleigh about his life and work. Contributors include musicians Liam O'Flynn and Rita Connolly and the playwright Stewart Parker. Producer JUDITH ELLIOTT BBC Northern Ireland
Fifty years ago the black American athlete Jesse Owens dominated the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games, conceived by Hitler as a public display of Aryan superiority to be captured on film by Leni Riefenstahl. The emergence of the black athletes threw the Nazi leadership into confusion as they tried every way to lessen the impact and to undermine the true spirit of the Games.

von Tschammer und Osten:
Ormonde's Glorious Hospitall In 1680 the Duke of Ormonde, inspired by Les Invalides in Paris, laid the foundation stone for a Royal 'Hospitall' at
Kilmainham, near Dublin.
Older than the Chelsea Hospital by two years, until 1929 it was also a home for 'poor, aged, maimed and infirm officers and soldiers'.
In recent times what is undoubtedly Ireland's finest 17th-century building was in disrepair. Now an award-winning restoration has given the Hospitall a new life as the National Centre for Culture and the Arts.

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.
