Mr. HOWARD MARSHALL : ' The Higher the Fewer'
There should be a big public for the sports talks this winter, in which record-holders in such varied sports as billiards, horse-racing, bicycling, shooting, golf, motor-racing and boxing will come to the microphone to tell how they train for and achieve their triumphs. Today Mr. Howard Marshall introduces the series with some general . thoughts on record seeking and breaking.

: WELSH INTERLUDE

Mr. R. T. JENKINS : ' Seren Gomer, the first Welsh Newspaper (1814-1815)'
(West Regional Programme)
The pioneer of weekly journalism in Welsh was Joseph Harris , a Baptist minister at Swansea, who started a paper, Seren Gomer, the first issue of which appeared on January 1, 1814. The paper had a run of eighty-five weeks, the reasons for its eventual failure being the economic distress of the time, the high costs of a taxed newspaper, and the apathy of the Welsh reading public. Much entertainment may be derived from a study of the advertisements of the time : the beginnings of political-mindedness in .Wales can also be detected in its pages. Mr. R. T. Jenkins is Head of the Welsh History Department at the University College of North Wales. Bangor.

: Anywhere for a News Story-IX

Mr. S. R. LITTLEWOOD : Interviewing the Topmost Voter of the British Isles'
Mr. S. R. Littlewood , now dramatic critic of The Morning Post, was sent to interview the northernmost voter in the British Isles during the General Election of 1910. It was a bitterly cold January, and his quest meant a 700-mile journey by rail and 50 miles by sea through the tortuous channels of the Orkney and Shetland archipelagoes. There was little election fever in this scattered constituency ; the sitting member was a genial and popular giant who spent most of his time in the House knitting. But the wandering dramatic critic found hia man, a retired skipper of a Greenland whaler, on a lonely promontory of the little island of Unst.

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.
