Farming Before Christmas'
A. W. Ling and Edgar King
The auctioneer plays a very important part in the agricultural life of a rural district. He knows all the farmers, because he does their annual farm valuations and the tenant-right valuations when a farmer enters or leaves a farm. In fact, he has a better knowledge of the farmer and his pocket than has anyone else, official or otherwise, and he is frequently the farmer's guide, philosopher, and friend. He will rebuke one farmer for foolish bidding at an auction, just as he will remonstrate with another for being over-cautious. Listeners can thus expect an interesting discussion this evening, for A. W. Ling brings to the microphone an experienced auctioneer in Edgar King.
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.
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.
