Introduced by Olive Shapley
' Round the Shops,' by Ruth Drew
Today's guest speaker: ' Money comes Second,' by Joan Harrison
'Growing Watercress,' by Walter Smith
' The World is my Stock-in-Trade': a woman travel agent tells of her experiences
Reading from ' The Fortnight in September,' by R. C. Sherriff , arranged by the author. Read by Ronald Simpson
The ten readings, which Mr. Sherriff himself has arranged from his novel, will spread over two weeks. The holiday-makers in the story are not rich people, nor do they meet with the sort of adventure that changes the course of people's lives. What happens is-a a holiday: no more but no less. They needed a holiday, they looked forward to it, they enjoyed it, and they learn more from it about themselves and about each other than they knew before. They are the better for it.

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.
