'The Blacksmith'
S. P. B. Mais
vans have recently visited two smithies of very different kinds, one in Nottinghamshire, the other in Sussex.
Standing on the village green of Wellow in Notts is Richard True-man's smithy, a forge in the real old tradition. But in that of Frederick Bish of Shoreham all modern improvements have been installed. No horse ever enters the Bish smithy, which, with all-electrical apparatus, is concerned with motor cars, tractors, and modern iron-work.
S. P. B. Mais will link the recordings with narration, and the two smiths, who have never met before, will be in the studio to talk about fheir jobs.

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.
