Hungary, the land whose history is so rich in adventure and romance, still remains, even in these post-war days, one of the most picturesque countries in Europe. A Hungarian wedding is a ceremony full of music and colour, and Major Dudley Heathcote, who has lived for years in Central Europe, is well fitted to describe it to denizens in our drabber, if more prosperous, Western world.

: Capitals of Europe-III. Mr. GEORGE YOUNG: Berlin

IN the first of this series of talks on the Capitals of Europe, Mr. E. V. Lucas described Paris, and in the second Mr. Stephen Gwynn discoursed of Dublin. Mr. George Young knows his subject equally well. A diplomat by profession, he was in Berlin as correspondent to the Daily News from January to July, 1919—that eventful period just after the fall of the Hohenzollerns, when some of the most important happenings since the War were taking place.

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.
