Howard Marshall
What more dramatic than being in London this week, except, perhaps, an account of it ? The tenseness and preparation, and yet the calmness ; a glimpse of those who hold the destiny of England in their hands going quietly to and fro ; the ideal before us all, and the symbol of it everywhere. Who better than Howard Marshall could describe it ?
His deep voice, his lack of hesitation, his power of filling in the colour of the scene he is describing, whether it be the missing of Hammond in a Test Match, when, as Guy Pocock said in a recent article in The Listener, one could almost see the fielder dazzled by the sun' ; whether it be the Coronation, or a boxing match, or the wonderful talk he gave the other day on the evacuation of school children, Howard Marshall has, to quote Pocock again, ' his broadcast in hand and plays on his audience with quiet confidence'.

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.
