My Friends the Greeks
Dilys Powell
Dilys Powell married the late Hum-fry Payne, whose discoveries in connection with the archaic marbles of the Acropolis won him fame at the age of thirtyrthree. On their mar- riage they went out to Athens. Hum-fry Payne then being a student of the British School of Archaeology.

In 1929 her husband was made Director of the British School, and from then until his death in 1936 she regularly accompanied him on archæological expeditions. She was living in Athens at the time of the revolutions of 1933 and 1935 and the coup d'état of August, 1936.
For the last year Dilys Powell has been on the editorial staff of the Sunday Times. She is the author of a critical study of contemporary poetry, ' Descent from Parnassus '.

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.
