'THE BEST OF YESTERDAY'

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Week by week the Third Programme will let listeners hear again the best talks of past years. This evening you can hear one of the most distinguished of all
Sir Max Beerbohm on ' London Revisited * first broadcast on December 29, 1935
All that ' Max ' said about London in 1995 is as interesting, entertaining, and valid as ever. But since then. from 1940 to 1945, London has been the target for more than wit, and this creates between ' Max ' and his listeners a tension that was absent eleven years ago. It is as though a powerful, silent answer were returned to him by the ugly stones and girders of his firm distaste; ' in the quiet magic of the dawn.' more than the inaesthetic bulk of Regent Street has seemed especially nasty.'

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.
