by SUSAN HILL with ye suppose all jeopardies are passed,
Ware yet, I rede you, of Fortune's double cast.
For one false point she is wont to keep in store,
And under the fell oft festered is the sore:
That when ye think all danger for to pass ,
Ware of the lizard lieth lurking in the grass. JOHN SKELTON , poet born 1460, died 1529
The music, played by JOHN MARSON and sung by JONATHAN cooke , was specially composed by GEOFFREY BURGON
The poems are taken from the work of John Skelton , except three lines from the poem ' Dunwich ' by ANTHONY THWAITE Producer GUY VAESEN

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.
