: Miss FLORA GRIERSON: 'Armchair Travels -I, Travelling in the East in the Middle Ages '

TRAVELLERS in the Middle Ages were not the sticklers for truth they perhaps tnight have been. Nevertheless, their fantastic angle of vision, however much it may have impeded knowledge at the time, has the merit of providing us today with amusing, as well as instructive, reading—instructive, because of the light it throws on the Middle Ages' mentality and amusing, because of the grotesque vein of superstitious credence with which it is threaded. In this weekly series, travel books of all times will be discussed, from Marco Polo and Sir John Mandeville to D. H. Lawrence and Dr. Ethel Smyth. Miss Grierson, who is giving the series, is the daughter of Professor Grierson, of Edinburgh. She has several times deputised before the microphone for Mr. Desmond MacCarthy.

: Dr. G. G. COULTON: 'England in the Middle Ages—II. The Mediieval Village: (a) Considered as a Unit of Civil Society '

THERE are few greater authorities, today, on the subject of mediaeval life than Dr. Coulton who, in this, his second talk in the series, will speak on the subject of the Mediaeval Village, considered as a unit of civil society. Under Feudalism, as Dr. Coulton shows, the comparatively democratic character of the Teutonic village was all but destroyed, since the freeman frequently became a serf, finding therein protection, but loss of liberty. The peasant's life-his two-and three-field system of tillage, his common rights. his rents to the manor, his service in the form of labour, and his duties as village official in the Manor Court—will all be illustrated in this week's talk.

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.
