This is the last of S. L. Bensusan's grouped surveys of agricultural conditions in Midland counties, in the course of which he has dealt with such matters as the incidence of urban and rural population, unemployment, and actual and potential use of the land.
Next month this well - known authority and broadcaster is to sum up his findings, and in subsequent broadcasts he will debate problems affecting land settlement. Existing schemes in the Midlands will be discussed-notably one at Cheltenham, one near Birmingham, and two in Leicestershire.
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.
