The first of five recollections by DENIS CONSTANDUROS 'As time goes by the accumulation of mental bric-a-brac fills the mind with a rich and varied store of junk which can yield unlimited wealth to the careful scavenger. I make no claim that these memories of my grandfather are in any way accurate.

Four conversations in which
Derek Cooper hears from people whose theories about food were ahead of their time. 3: The Living Soil
Derek Cooper talks to Lady Eve Balfour - patrician, farmer, 'crank' and revolutionary. In her book The Living Soil, published in 1943, Lady Eve pulled together the work of such pioneering scientists as McCarrison and Howard and used her own farming experience to show that the health of the soil, plants, animals and humans was inextricably linked. Officially her views were met with silence, incomprehension or derision. Today her work seems remarkably prophetic. Producer SHEILA DILLON

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.
