A Travelogue
The Traveller, S. P. B. Mais
Musical Director, Joseph Lewis
Producer, Francis Dillon
The characteristic burr of Sussex voices will be heard in this programme, the aim of which is to show that, although Sussex is being dangerously urbanised, there is still a typical idiom and a quiet untroubled life going on of the kind that has made this county one of the most beloved in England. Some weeks ago S. P. B. Mais, accompanied by Laurence Gilliam and Francis Dillon , set out to follow the course of the little river Adur from its source near West Grinstead to its mouth at Shoreham. On their way they kept their eyes wide open for the charm that is essentially Sussex -roach rising in the Knepp Lake, smoky taprooms of ancient inns, flint walled churches and battlemented castles.
Their travelogue, which will be broadcast from the old Grammar School at Steyning, will be a great occasion for Sussex folk, over thirty of whom will be gathered to take part in the transmission. Among these will be a Master of Foxhounds, a huntsman, a poacher, a head keeper, a farmer, a shepherd, a market-gardener, fishermen, an Excise man, and other Sussex characters.

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.
