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.
Life and Music from a Warwickshire
THE VILLAGE OF ILMINGTON lies to the west of the Stratford-Oxford main road. Ilmington is in Warwickshire. An attempt was recently made to have it transferred from Warwickshire to Gloucestershire. The story goes that at the height of the controversy, a resident was asked which he preferred, and plumped for Warwickshire ' because it's so mortal cold on top of they Glahstcrsheer hills '. It has an interesting old church, and fine old manor-house. Simon de Montfort , who was killed at the Battle of Evesham, lived there ; several of the de Montforts were Rectors. The manor-house is now the residence of Mr. Spenser Flower , who comperes this village feature. Inhabitants will describe the life of the village, and the talk will be broken up with music and snatches of song.


Unknown: Simon de Montfort

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.
