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.

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.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
