Dorsetshire Dialect Talk

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.
Arranged by Mr. E. Le Breton Martin

Last February Mr E. Le Breton Martin arranged a talk in the Worcester dialect, in which for the first time a genuine dialect speaker came to the London microphone.
Tonight's demonstration of the Dorset dialect - beloved of all readers of Hardy - will follow the same lines as its predecessor. Mr Le Breton Martin will give a short talk on the county, and the Dorsetshire man who has been specially chosen for the purpose by the Dorset County Association will repeat the substance of it in his own dialect - both idiom and accent. Like the first of the series, this should be a most interesting occasion for all listeners who may not have realized how much variety still resides in the English tongue, and how racy and expressive local dialects can be.

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.
