OLD Chelsea abounds in curious history, and even its churches have had strangely chequered careers. St. Luke's, about which Miss Elphinstone will talk this afternoon, has changed its title once and changed it back again ; it has changed from being a Parish Church to being the Parish Chapel of the Parish Church; and it has a Museum (specifically so called) within its walls—a combination of Circumstances that Miss Elphinstone is probably right in considering unique.
HALF the joy of walking-really enjoyable walking, not the sort where one reckons up the milestones with a stop-watch—lies in maps. Maps that show villages and inns and post offices and all the little lanes and bridle paths that motorists never see as they tear along their wide black roads. In his talk this evening Mr. Simpson will evoke some of the magic that lurks in every Ordnance map and even show how they can be used in fireside games.
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.
