' Tell me why?' Nature Talks by H. MORTIMER BATTEN
' Have you any questions to ask ? '
MORTIMER BATTEN continues his talks to children on Animal and Bird Life in Scotland throughout the Seasons. He invites questions, which he will answer, and wishes to encourage children to become little observers all over the country. These talks will be included in our programmes throughout the year, in order that the adventures and happenings of our wild creatures can be watched and recorded by hundreds of little people on holiday or living in the country.

Conducted by GEORGE HAWKINS (From Glasgow)
VISITORS to the National Band Festival at the Crystal Palace during the past five years can testify that the popularity of the Scottish C.W.S. Band is not confined to Scotland. A band which, in its first year of entry, secures second place in this famous festival is worthy of the highest respect. Critics are still loud in their praises of the magnificent performance of this fine band at the ' Palace ' last September, when they again secured second place in the World's Championship Contest.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
