: Mr. Allan Walker: A Walk from Edgware to Stanmore

Mr. Allan Walker is known to be an enthusiast for, and an expert on, the antiquities and architecture of London and its surroundings. Everyone who has heard his lectures or his broadcast talks knows that he would he an ideal companion for a walk, especially along a road so full of interest as that from Edgware, on the historic Watling Street, to Stanmore, as he would certainly know all about everything on the route, and nobody can make information interesting more deftly than he. This afternoon listeners can enjoy his company on this walk by the medium of their wireless sets.


Speaker: Allan Walker

: The Children's Hour

London and Daventry will take the Manchester Station Children's Hour. (You may 'Bank' on a good 'Holiday' programme)
It is always interesting to know what other people are doing, and, with this idea in view, the London and Daventry Children's Hour is taking a programme every few weeks from one or another of the Provincial Stations. Today the Manchester 'bill of fare' is to be simultaneously


The Sonatas of Beethoven

: DANCE MUSIC : THE RIVIERA CLUB DANCE BAND, under the direction of HARRY ROBBINS, from the Riviera Club

The loss of the recipe, however, brings him hope. It is found by a loafer, Slinks, who has just been promised a job in the Distillery, and he sells it to Paap at a good price. Paap sees in it a means of winning Sally's hand as a reward, but the hope is damped by Mr. Hook's threat to have the man who 'finds' it arrested.
Meanwhile, all is ready for the great celebrations at the Distillery. Van Vuyt is forbidden to go to Amsterdam by Paap, but ' persuades ' Slinks to sell him his job in the Distillery, and so we find him there in time for the rejoicings.
Capt. Paap, not wishing to court arrest, decides to return the recipe by means of a deputy and selects Van Vuyt , believing him to be one of the workmen. Van Vuyt hands it to Mr. Hook, who immediately accuses him of stealing it and orders his arrest, but here Sally intervenes with a much better plan.

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.
