' A Day Out'—4
' Meet the Hayward '
VERA GREEN goes to
Minchinhampton Music of Victor Hely-Hutchinson with GERALD MARTIN (baritone) and THE COMPOSER at the pianoforte,
' The Song of Nippy the Lobster', a Story by KITTY SPENCER
The Hayward was one of the most important offices of the old manorial courts. Minchinhampton, in the Cotswolds, is one of the few places where it survives in actuality. There the Lord of the Manor made over the Common to the National Trust, and the duties of the Hayward include keeping a detailed record of all animals belonging to the Commoners which are put out to graze, and branding each of them with the Minchinhampton sign, an ' H ' enclosed in a heart. The principal branding day in the year is May 13, and formerly a fair used to be held around the Old Lodge Inn on that day.

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.
