'DAY OF BATTLE'

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.
Another historic episode in the annals of the Torbreck Home Guard, by R. J. B. Sellar. Produced by Moultrie R. Kelsall
In a broadcast last month listeners were introduced to the Torhreck Company of the Home Guard, which gained the distinction of outwitting a regular Army detachment in night manoeuvres round the village.
This evening you will hear a further episode in the career of these worthies. The programme has been written in light-hearted dialogue, which nevertheless serves to underline the fighting qualities, determination and spirit that exist throughout the entire Home Guard, and exemplified in the imaginary doings of the Torbreck Company.

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.
