The Hon. James Best
A short time ago James Best gave a talk. which was much appreciated, on his visit to a German farm. Tonight he will give his personal 'observations on what he saw recently on some farms in Ireland. He himself farms some two hundred acres in Dorset.
Over 600,000 cattle are exported every year from Eire to Great Britain, and farmers and others will be interested to hear something of the conditions under which these Irish heifers and steers are produced, and of the people who raise them.
Mr. Best is on the committee of the Bath and West Show, and writes for The Field and The Times on agriculture and on natural history.

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.
