I want to abolish Burns Nichts '


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.
Answered by Sheriff J. G. JAMESON
(From Edinburgh)
This is the first of a series of talks in which a number of good haters and ' bonnie fichters ' have been invited to attack various revered and well-founded institutions of modem life. The ritual centring round January 25 has a long tradition behind it and bids fair to endure as long as Scotsmen read Burns. Catherine Carswell wants to abolish it: Sheriff Jameson will enter a plea for its retention. Mrs. Carswell, with commendable prudence, is speaking from London. The result should entertain the listener as much as it stimulates his interest.

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.
