With His Contemporaries in Muddlecombe.
Written and Presented by GEORGE SCANTLEBURY.
THE STATION ORCHESTRA:
Conducted by WINIFRED GRANT.
Ann Cobleigh is preparing the room for visitors and she appears agitated because Uncle Tom has not yet returned from his work on the farm. The clock strikes seven and suddenly the door is swung open.
Uncle Tom, clad in his farm smock and dirty old billycock hat, steps across the room to his wife, leaving a trail of muddy boot marks on the carpet.
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.
