: Major W. PEER GROVES, ' The Story of Snuff '

TOBACCO was originally introduced to the Chinese in the fifteenth century by the Portuguese. The Chinese, who proverbially do everything contrariwise, ground the stems of the tobacco leaves into snuff. Chinese snuff and snuff bottles were introduced into Europe a husdred years later by the Dutch, who followed the Portuguese in the Far Eastern markets. Major Peer Groves has made a study of the history of snuff, and has some original views.

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.
