' September Work in the Garden '
D. Harris and J. Glavin
The most useful gardeners are. those who know the special requirements of plants in different parts of the country. J. Glavin , who is coming to the microphone this evening with D. Harris , has had wide experience, for he was born in Ireland, spent his early years in the North of England, and then came to the West Country. He was for several years on the staff of the horticultural department of Leeds University, and later was on the staff of Somerset County Council. Although he retired some years ago, he has not lost his love of gardening, and his garden in Bridgwater has a fine show of flowers, fruit, and vegetables.

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.
