David Harris and H. G. Alexander
Tonight's discussion will, it is hoped, prove that the growing of orchids is quite within the scope of the amateur gardener. From H. G. Alexander listeners hear the views of an orchidist of wide reputation whose name has long been associated with the famous Wf-stonbirt collection. He is a member of the Orchid Committee of the Royal Horticultural Society, and in 1926 was awarded the Victoria Medal of Honour for his services to horticulture.
9: The Growth of Hymn-Singing from Sherborne Abbey
A representative programme of hymns, old and new, illustrative of the development of hymn-singing in English churches
In 705 Sherborne became the seat of a bishopric, which was removed in 1075 to Old Sarum. St. Aldhelm was the first bishop, and the abbey - built in the twelfth century and largely restored in the fifteenth-still contains some vestiges of the old church.
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.
