The World Goes By


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.
A Radio Magazine
Introduced by F.H. Grisewood
This feature grows in popularity because the quality of the personalities in the world's news brought week by week to the microphone keeps up to the standard of those who have broadcast before. In recent weeks listeners have heard: Dr. Ludwig Koch , the famous German scientist, who has spent years recording the songs of wild birds in their natural surroundings; Beecher Stowe, grandson of the author of 'Uncle Tom's Cabin', giving memories of Mark Twain; and Steve Donoghue actually speaking from the Piccadilly Hotel before the dinner given to him on his retirement by his brother jockeys, with Gordon Richards in the chair. Such personalities as these will broadcast tonight, and every Wednesday. Listeners who tune in will really hear some personalities that matter in the world going by.


Presenter: F. H. Grisewood

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.
