: ' Things Shaping'

A broadcast from the Land Settlement Scheme in the Village of Boverton, near Llantwit Major, Glamorganshire.
A few months ago the Welsh Land Settlement Society started the first thirty unemployed men on a new type of land settlement scheme on the Glamorgan sea coast near the village of Boverton, which will later find employment for many more. Tonight the microphone is being taken to Boverton and you will hear from the men themselves how things are faring with them.

: Banana Special

Jamaica to Covent Garden via Bristol
' The most delicious thing in the world is a banana.' — Benjamin Disraeli.
Devised by GORDON BIRD
Produced by PAT BEECH
The ancients called bananas ' the food of the wise ' and the food of paradise '. Thanks to their protective skin, they can safely be eaten in the dark and they then make a very convenient and palatable food for a workman away from home, in the factory or mines. Today it would be an occasion for surprise if a request for a banana were met by the words of the now famous lyric. But bananas in Bristol are no joke. The 850 odd million of the West Indian variety that passed through the Avonmouth Docks last year provided direct employment for hundreds of men. This programme is designed to show the great speed and immense amount of organisation required to bring the fruit in an eatable condition to the table.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
