Lieut.-Colonel A.B. Mitchell, O.B.E., M.P.
Last Monday listeners heard the Minister of Agriculture for Northern Ireland, the Rt. Hon. Sir Basil Brooke, speak on the opening night of Milk Week in Belfast. Tonight's talk will be given by Lieut.-Colonel A.B. Mitchell, Chairman of the Joint Milk Council, which has been responsible for the organisation of Milk Week in conjunction with the Ministry of Agriculture.
The object of the campaign is to bring home to the citizens of Belfast the value of milk as a food. Research during the past twenty years has shown the importance of 'protective foods' - foods that supply mineral matter and vitamins and thus protect the body from the deficiency diseases.
Milk is one of the best of the 'protective foods' - in fact it is the nearest approach to a perfect food. Milk Week aims at increasing the average consumption per head of the population in Belfast from 2 1/2 pints per week, as it is at present, to seven pints.
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.
