Devonshire Dialect Talk, arranged by E. LE BRETON MARTIN


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.
WORCESTERSHIRE, Somersetshire and Cumberland have already had their turn in this series of talks, arranged by Mr. E. le Breton Martin , and designed to bring to the London microphone the veritable accents and dialects of those parts of the country in which standardization has not yet killed the native speech. Now comes Devonshire, the sturdy Western county that proudly cherishes its own dialect. Most listeners have heard versions of it frequently on the stage, but they should bear in mind that tonight's broadcast will be giving them no imitation, however artful, but the real thing.


Arranged By: Mr. E. Le Breton Martin

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.
