A Child of the Jago


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.
by ARTHUR MORRISON abridged in ten parts by ROY APPS Read by Leonard Fenton
'A square of 250 yards or less, just off Shoreditch High
Street-that was all there was of the Jago. But in that square, the human population swarmed in thousands.'
Dicky Perrott is a child of the Jago, growing up there during the 1870s. He must learn the Jago ways of survival, and become a better street-fighter, pickpocket and cosh-carrier than anyone else. For there is no other way, is there?

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
