A programme introduced by W. B. Yeats and read by V. C.
Clinton Baddeley and Margot Ruddock
The many listeners who were interested in the novel poetry readings, ' In the Poets' Pub' and ' In the Poets' Parlour ', which were arranged by W. B. Yeats and broadcast in April will look forward to tonight's broadcast of some of his own poems which have been selected by him-especially as he is coming over from Ireland to introduce them himself. The poems will be ' In Memory of Eva Gore-Booth and Con Markiewicz ', ' The Rose Tree 'An Irish Airman Foresees His Death ', ' Mad as the Mist and Snow ', and ' Sailing to Byzantium ', all published in 'Selected Poems of W. B. Yeats '; ' He and She ', published in ' A Full Moon in March '; and ' The Curse of Cromwell', not yet published.

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.
