(From Manchester)
SINCE his TALK last week Mr. Geoffrey Boumphrey has covered a lot of ground. He has travelled the Icknield Way, walking, roughly speaking, in a south-westerly direction from Royston in Hertfordshire, through Baldock, Dun-stable, Wendover, past Watlington on the Chiltern Hills, over Swincombe Down, and on to Cleeve and Streatley.
He next travelled the loop of the Ridge Way. Starting from Streatley and passing through Segsbury Camp, two and a half miles south of Wantage, he negotiated Letcombe Camp and walked more or less northwest to
Dragon Hill and White Horse, two miles south of Uffington ; thence in a south-westerly direction through Ash-bury and Bishopstone to Fox Hill.
Lastly, he took Ermine Street.
Cricklade, Cirencester, Gloucester. Thence across the Severn and Forest of Dean to Coleford, south down the Wye Valley, and on to Chepstow and Caerleon, above Newport, Mon.

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.
