The War
Memoirs of General Gland by HENRY REED with and Hilda Tablet's Rangoon March realised by DONALD SWANN
Henry Reed writes: These recollections, elicited with some difficulty from General Gland, are not to be regarded as a continuation of the Shewin-Tablet Saga, which ended with The Primal Scene As It Were ... They are to ba considered merely as a parergon, if that.
Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON (First broadcast 6 May 1959)

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.
