Lord RIDDELL : ' The International Printing Exhibition '


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.
WHAT, one wonders, would Caxton with his simple printing press have made, for instance, of the great rotary presses that pour out into the world their millions of papers daily ? At the International Printing Exhibition, to bo held at Olympia this month, every branch of printing will be represented, including almost every kind of type from all countries. Special attention will be paid to publicity printing, such as posters, leaflets, etc. The last International Exhibition was held four years ago, but improvements have been so vast since then that the present exhibition, with its working models, will in no way cover the same ground. The interest in the International Printing Exhibition at Olympia is therefore not merely to the trade ; it is equally interesting to the public at large. Lord Riddell, the great newspaper proprietor and publisher, is eminently the person to introduce such an exhibition to the listener.

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.
