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.

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.
