Living in the Past 'Having a Meal' ALICE RITCHIE


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.
.Listeners have heard from Harold Child how our forebears went to the theatre, and from Arthur Bryant how they travelled'. Today Miss Alice Ritchie is to describe how they had a meal.
Ever since her Newnham College days Alice Ritchie has culled a harvest of interesting facts about manners and customs in days gone by, as listeners to her talks in ' Fashionable Crazes ' know. They will remember her three broadcasts on Pets, the Simple Life, and Gardens.

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.
