At Home

Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Tedder and Lady Tedder
Introduced by Richard Dimbleby.
A BBC outside broadcast from Lord Tedder's home near Banstead in Surrey.

Lord Tedder-'At Home'

Marshal of the Royal Air Force, Lord Tedder, who will be 'At Home' to viewers tonight, is most widely known for his record during the last war. It was he who contributed so much to the development of Army-Air Force cooperation in the Western Desert, and he was, of course, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander during the campaign which followed the Normandy landings. But Lord Tedder's interests are not confined to military matters. As Chancellor of Cambridge University and
Chairman of one of the largest motor manufacturing companies, he has been able to form strong views on industrial and human problems in this country.
It is not, however, entirely about Lord Tedder's public activities that Richard Dimbleby will be interviewing him tonight, for Lord and Lady Tedder live in an old farmhouse, whose records date back to the fifteenth century, and which is a delightfully quiet retreat, a little more than fourteen miles from the centre of London.

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.
