' MENDIP CAVE CRAWL'

Synopsis

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.
An attempt to descend with micro
'phones'into Swildon's Hole
' Slide carefully, head first, down this narrow shaft. At the bottom is a waterfall, scramble quickly through the water and squeeze yourself through a small hole in front of you. Then on your left is a narrow ledge along which you must crawl. Keep in touch with the left-hand wall because the dripping water will put out your candle and there is a forty foot drop on your immediate right. Then....'
These are the instructions for the first part of the crawl, but there is worse to come. Four hundred feet of narrow tunnels and ' squeezes' through which only a small man can pass, with occasional deep streams, waterfalls and caves, all hundreds of feet below ground.

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.
