from Dunoon
In Victorian times Dunoon was the holiday retreat for the wealthy merchants of Glasgow, who would travel the 28 miles down the Clyde by steamer. Today the town is known as the ' Gateway to the Western Highlands' and every year welcomes thousands of visitors who come to fish, to sail on the Lochs and to explore the spectacular scenery of the Cowal Peninsula.
John Stuart Roberts has joined the holidaymakers and in tonight's programme meets some of the local people, including Francis Frankum , who was rescued from the torpedoed liner, Lusitania, in 1915. He also talks to Tom and Barabel McKay , whose four teenage children decided to be baptised together in the Firth of Clyde near their home at Innellan. They join Christians from many churches in the area to sing their favourite hymns in Old and St Cuthbert 's Church, Dunoon.

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.
