' The World's Largest Market '
To most Londoners, probably even those who pride themselves on their knowledge of the lesser-known ' sights,' Club Row means nothing at all. Yet, as they will discover when they hear Miss Elphinstone's talk, this little street in Bethnal Green is the oldest part of a market where one may buy dogs of all kinds - from the aristocrat who sells on his pedigree alone to the family pet being sold on the eve of licence day - to say nothing of canaries, goats, bicycles, rabbits - Chinchilla and otherwise - tortoises, and any number of other things: all in an atmosphere as truly Cockney as Dickens ever conceived.
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.
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
programmes, online etc.
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.
