George Davie 's Sextet
Produced by Howard M. Lockhart
Most phases of life in a Scottish home-courtship, marriage, the quarrel, the reconciliation, and of course the vast difference made by the presence of a bairn-will be reflected in this programme. The story will be told in songs, readings, and one sketch, based upon 'The Barrin' o' the Door', the song in which the two old folk have quarrelled and prefer to watch the ' goings-on ' of two intruders rather than take any action likely to oblige one another. There is a strong cast, with Roland Smith and Gus Stratton as the two intruders.

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.
