Jerome K. Jerome 's famous sequel to ' Three Men In A Boat' dramatised for radio by John Jowett with Joan Clement Scott
Georgie Henschel , John Sharp Dennis McCarthy. Ian Sadler Production by Vernon Harris
What is a ' Bummcl '? Let Jerome give the answer, as he doe< in the final paragraph of his well-loved book. * A " Bummel " I should describe as a Journey, long or short, without an end; the only thing regulating it being the necessity of getting back within a given time to the point from which one started. Sometimes It is through busy streets, and sometimes through the fields and lanes: sometimes we can be spared for a few hours; and sometimes for a few days. But long or short, but here or there, our thoughts are ever on the running of the sand. We nod and smile to many as we pass; with some we stop and talk awhile; and with a few we walk a little way. We have been much interested, and often a little tired. But on the whole we have had a pleasant time, and are sorry when 'tis over.'

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.
