' The Celestial Felon,' by Jack Shepherd. Read by Mollie Austin followed by Walks in the West Country
8-Isle of Wight
From Ryde to Sandown with Peter Bale
Starting from Ryde, one of the three ferry terminals on the island, Peter Bale walks along the coast to Nettlestone Point at the north-east corner and then southwards to St. Helen's and the reclaimed land that used to be Brading Harbour, a great smugglers' resort in the past. The town, which is very ancient, was once of great importance with a Mayor and two Members of Parliament, but nowadays life there is quiet, though Brading's young people have a great musical reputation. The sea is an important part of this programme, for two thousand years ago the Romans sailed across the Channel to the island, and today the Solent is a famous yachting centre. From Brading, Peter Bale goes up over the hill past Yaverland Manor and finishes his walk at Sandown Bay.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
