'UNDER LONDON' ' Crypts, Vaults, Roman Remains ' F. L. Stevens


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.
London's story lies under London, as today's broadcast-the third in this interesting series-will show. Mr. Stevens, who is responsible for the series, will take listeners in imagination to the crypt of St. Mary-le-Bow, where stones of a Roman road are still showing, where Roman bricks help to make the walls, and where spearhead decorations on the Norman pillars in the crypt are unique. He will speak of the arches that gave the name to the Court of the Arches, the ecclesiastical court of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and explain why this crypt is an interesting link between Roman, medieval and modern London.
He will go on to describe the fine barrel vaulting in the crypt of Bartholomew the Great, have something to say about St. Paul's and St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and finally he will speak of the old Adelphi Arches where Dickens used to play as a boy, and of the wine vaults under the railway stations 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.
