'Wedding Group'


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.
Produced by HOWARD ROSE
Most of us at some time or other have looked through an old photograph album-the family kind, bound in leather with gilt clasps-and have wondered what sort of lives were really led by the men in chimney-pot hats and the women .in crinolines looking up at us with such surprised expressions from the stiff pages.
A picture like that was taken in Edinburgh in 1860-Wedding Group- and Philip Wade 's play is an attempt to describe how it came to he taken. One thing is certain-if things had not fallen out as they did, it would never have been taken at all.
Philip Wade jumped into fame as a radio playwright with Family Tree four years ago, and enhanced his reputation with Oranges and Lemons. He was featured in ' People You Hear' in April.
An article by Philip Wade will be found on page 3. This play will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow night

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.
