: Waterloo - June 18th 1815

" There was a found of revelry by night."
A Radio Picture of the Period.
The drama of Waterloo is pictured as Lord Byron felt it - not the battle itself, but the events at Brussels which preceded it: the lighthearted revels, with the note of anxiety sounding through them all, and the bustle, noise, music and hurry of war. Then the counting of the cost, and the dirge for the fallen.
Then the Comedy, the engaging insincerities of Becky Sharp. To end, the faree-for Bill Adams and not Sir Arthur was the Conqueror.
Adapted and arranged from the works of LORD BYRON and WILLIAM MAKEPEACE THACKERAY by L. B. RAMSDEN and A R. B. MUNRO. Incidental Music arranged by Dr. HERBERT THOMPSON.
Drums and Bugles of the 7th BATT. WEST YORKSHIRE REGIMENT.

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.
