' The Carlyles at Cheyne Row'


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.
A broadcast from 24, Cheyne Row,
Commemorating the occupancy of this house by Thomas Carlyle and his wife since June 10, 1834 ; and an incident in the life they lived there until her death in 1886, and his in 1881 Comprising a tour of the house and A performance of the Play
It is now over a hundred years since the Carlyles took possession of 24, Cheyne Row. In 1895 the house was acquired by the Carlyle's House Memorial Trust, by which it has since been preserved and made accessible to the public. Carlyle's birth-place at Ecclefechan was similarly acquired, and this week the two houses are being handed over to the National Trust, and the Scottish National Trust, respectively. They will thus become the property of the nation in perpetuity.

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.
