: ' AN ULSTER GARDEN ' H. G. Fleet

Hardy heather cultivation is one of the least-known branches of gardening. Heather was first introduced into England in the eighteenth century, and its cultivation had reached a high level by 1838, but in that year-exactly a century ago-an exceptionally severe, frost almost completely destroyed the heather gardens of Great Britain. It was this catastrophe that led to the introduction of the hardy variety.
Tonight H. G. Fleet brings with him to the studio J. W. Porter , a Fellow of the Royal Horticultural Society and an expert in the cultivation of the hardy heather, to discuss the subject for Ulster gardening listeners.

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.
