' Worzel Gummidge ', No. 4
'Aunt Sally' a dialogue story by BARBARA TODD
JOHN MORGAN (' The Farmer ') will give the first of a series of talks on ' The
Farm and its Animals '
The older children who are listening today may be interested to know that when John Morgan was not much older than themselves life became a hard fact for him. His schooldays ended abruptly and he travelled across England from the West Country parish where he was bom to take up a job on an Essex farm. He worked the long hours of the labourers, took his turn in the ' Harvest Gang ', sent home half his small,, wages, boarded and lodged with a horseman and his wife, and slept in a screened-off corner at the top of the cottage stairs. He moved from farm to farm, learning this and that, dairy farming in Shropshire, rising to be -manager of a large farm on the Yorkshire moors, until at last in Sussex he had a farm of his own.
Nobody knows more about the farm and its animals. And in his first talk today he is to speak about young animals and birds that are being born or hatched everywhere-calves, colts, pigs, chickens, ducks. During this monthly series he will describe the lives of a small flock of sheep, from the time they come into the world in bitter weather, through the days of growth and the days of shearing. Town boys and girls will find their visits to the country more interesting after hearing these talks, and country boys and girls will have a lot to add to their knowledge. John Morgan not only knows all about farming, but is one of the best of broadcasters. The farming talks which he gave for over a year won him national fame.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
