: Sir RICHARD REDMAYNE, K.C.B. : ' Coa1 Mines: Past, Present, and Future-I, How Coal-mining began in Great Britain'

THE history of our coal mines to which we owe so much, but about which, as a rule, we know so little, is a matter of wide concern to us,particu. larly at this juncture. Sir Richard Redmayne , who is giving this series of talks on how coal-mining began in Great Britain, the early conditions ot the workers, mining legislation before and after the War, and the modern equipment of the collieries, was H.M. Chief Inspector of Mines from 1908 to 1920. From 1916-20 he was Assistant to the Controller of Coal Mines; in 1919 he was Assessor to the Chairman of the Coal Industry Commission, and he has also been a member of numerous governmental Committees and Commissions on mines and mining.

: Mr. C. R. ASHBEE :'The Devastated Areas of England '

MR. C. R. ASHBEE is no stranger to listeners; he has broadcast several times before on various aspects of this vexing and pertinent question. One has only to watch the correspondence columns of the Press to see how rapidly the feeling is spreading that something must be done and quickly, to preserve our common heritage of rural beauty from the vandalism of unthinking commercialism. But much still remains to be done before it becomes a precept of common acceptance that, in the long run, beauty does pay.

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.
