THE PITMAN CENTENARY DINNER

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.
The Speech of the Evening given by 1. J. Pitman at a dinner held to commemorate the centenary of the invention of Phonography by Sir Isaac Pitman from the Swan Hotel,
Wotton-under-Edge
In 1837 at Wotton-under-Edge, Sir Isaac Pitman , then a young school-master, originated a method of brief writing that had an absolutely phonetic basis. The invention revolutionised the art of shorthand. I- J. Pitman , who makes the speech of the evening, is the grandson of the inventor.

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.
