Many kinds of animals are able to do remarkable things, that are similar, in fact, to our own activities. Ants, for example, make homes, care for their children, sew with silk, use other insects as cows, play, and even make servants of other ants.
Miss Garscadden joined the Scottish staff of the B.B.C. during the first month of its existence. In those days she was called on to do all kinds of work, her first job being to read a talk to women. There followed immediately the first Children's Hour, and Aunt Kathleen (as she is known today) was called on to sing. Since then she has been most intimately associated with the Children's Hour. Veteran listeners will remember that Aunt Kathleen used to be called ' Aunt Cyclone ' owing to her sudden appearance in the studio when a weather forecast was being read.
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.
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.
