Mr. A. B. B. VALENTINE: ' Londoners' Country—III, From Leith Hill to the Thames '


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.
To a man from the mountains or the wide open spaces of the Far West, Surrey country would look Lilliputian; but on its miniature scale it abounds in charm. From Leith Hill (famed as a landmark and as a spot from which one gets marvellous views on every side) miles of Surrey scenery-hills and winding roads, meadows and rivers and dense-foliaged woods-running right up to the river on the north, and on the north-east to the outskirts of London on 7.0 (Daventry only) Mr. DONALD MAXWELL: The
Countryman in London-III, Nautical London '
A LTHOUGH the big docks are moving steadily down the river, London itself remains, as , to its Eastern verge, very much a port. Wapping, Poplar and Shadwell are still shipping parishes ; anywhere down the length of the East India Dock Road you may see masts and funnels rising suddenly behind the roofs ; the names of the streets are nautical, and the River dominates it all. It is in many ways the most interesting part of London, and Mr. Donald Maxwell knows it inside out.

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.
