F. Darke. Mr. Aldington has been farming i n the Vale'of Evesham for about twenty years. He was formerly a railway guard. In the Labour interest he has contested the Evesham Division. Mr. Milligan comes from the North ; he has seen a good deal of urban unemployment in a social service centre on Merseyside.

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
