: Mr. E. C. ASH, Strange Dogs and their Stranger Ways '

IN the days when belief in the supernatural was more prevalent than it is now, dogs were the centre of innumerable superstitions. Strange dog; were met with on lonely moors, or weird bnyings were heard on the hills at night, and men thought that these mysterious. uncanny beasts must embody the souls of men and women working out their salvation, or of infants who died unbaptizod. Mr. Edward C. Ash is very learned in these matters — his recently-published book, called ‘Dogs, Their History and Development,’ was a magnificent and monumental work that seems likely to become the standard authority -and he will tell tonight of some of the strangest of these beliefs, of other times and of our own.

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.
