Day Navigation



by F. Fraser Darling Director of Research,
The Conservation Foundation. New York
One grave aspect of the African situation is the wasteful dissipation of wild-life resources that has taken place at an accelerating rate for half a century. When it is almost too late, opinion is changing to a realisation that, with the natural fauna, the flora suffers, and without its natural vegetation the soil of Africa is in trouble. African climates and soil, whether old or very new, constitute a delicate balance of living things. If this is seriously upset, irreparable loss may follow.
A conference to consider this situation begins at Arusha, Tanganyika, on September 5.

: A Taste of Honey

by Shelagh Delaney performed by The Company of the Library Theatre, Manchester
Production by David Scase Presented for radio by Alfred Bradley
: third broadcast
'A boy friend wanted to improve my mind, so he took me to the Opera House, Manchester, to see a play. When we came out I said I could do better than that. My friend laughed, so I took a week off from Metro-Vicks. factory and wrote the enclosed. Please let me know what you think, although I hate criticism of any kind.....' (Shelagh Delaney writing to Joan Littlewood at the Theatre Royal, Stratford.)
The dialogue seemed to stand out from the page, and the courage of the nineteen-year-old girl, giving a true picture of the love-hate relationship of a mother and daughter, together with the sense of fun and love of life which permeates the play, convinced Theatre Workshop that here was a script and a writer with a unique contribution to make to the theatre.

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.
