' Shrubs '
D. Harris and F. G. Cousins
A discussion on the lay-out and growing of shrubs for private and public gardens
F. G. Cousins was formerly a member of the staff of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. He lives at Tor-quay, where he is regarded as one of the best authorities in the West
Country on the culture of shrubs.
Many gardening talks are topical, but on this occasion a long view will be taken. Hints will be given to those who wish to have decorative material for the home next winter, such as berried cuttings. The spring offers a good opportunity to plant many evergreens, and a word will also be said about the spring treatment of shrub hedges.

A short story by Evelyn Waugh read by the author.
Evelyn Waugh, who has now been living in the West Country for some time, is one of the few writers today who can write good satirical fiction in both short-story and novel form. 'Decline and Fall', 'Vile Bodies', 'Black Mischief', and 'Handful of Dust' are classics of their kind. In 1936 his 'Edmund Campion', a biography, was awarded the Hawthornden Prize.
Recently he took part in the series of discussions entitled 'Readers and Reading'.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
