AFTERNOON TOPICS

Synopsis

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.
Mr. ALLEN WALKER. ' Walks Through
London-Westminster '
WESTMINSTER is not merely the historic seat of government of tho -kingdom ; the site, for nearly two thousand years, of the Abbey in which the kings of England have been crowned, of the Parliament House, the Law Courts (for Westminster Hill was. until the opening of the Law Courts in the Strand, in 1882, the legal hub of the country) and the Government offices. In addition to all these formal glories so well known to tho sightseer, old Westminster contains many nóoks and corners with a secluded ehcrm of their own -for instance, the cloisters of the Abbey where the famous Westminster School is housed, the little old streets between Dean's Yard and the big new office buildings on Millbank, and the touch of a vanished dignity that lingers in Queen Anne's Gate. Mr. Allen Walker is among the most erudite and the most discerning lovers of old London, and thoae who have heard his lectures on such subjects, or his architectural Talks broadcast last year, will have every confidence in accepting him as a guide.

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.
