: ' THE USE OF THE LAND '—1

' The Place of Agriculture in National Life'
The Rt. Hon. W. S. Morrison ,
M.P., Minister of Agriculture
Anthony Hurd
The Minister of Agriculture will open this new series of autumn talks by emphasising the topicality and importance of the subject. Anthony Hurd , well-known broadcaster on farming topics, will continue by indicating the extent to which agriculture enters into the life of every citizen. It is still true that more people in this country are employed in agriculture than in any other single primary or manufacturing industry. The changing processes of agriculture, and the policies for dealing with the problems of the land, are vital, whether from the point of view of nutrition or from that of pure economics. The question of the country's food supply, for instance, should be of the keenest personal interest to everyone, and not only to those directly connected with farming.

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.
