' THE LASS OF RICHMOND HILL '
A Comedy of Yorkshire, with Music. Written by MAX KESTER
EVERY listener has, at least once, heard the old song 'The Lass of Richmond Hill. " but few realize that it is not the Richmond in Surrey which is meant, but the old town in the North Riding of Yorkshire. The lass of Richmond Hill was a real person : her name was Frances
I'Anson, and the house where she lived still stands at the top of Frenchgate, Richmond.
Our sketch this evening attempts to show how this old song came to be written.

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.
