relayed from the Grand Hotel.

: Programme

S.B. from London.

: Transmission from a Coal Mine.

S.B. to all Stations except Newcastle.
The reception of programmes broadcast from the surface of the earth is to-day a commonplace; to pick up signals from aeroplanes is equally simple; the hydrophone has enabled us to transmit submarine noises; it remains, then, to broadcast from under the earth's surface, and this we propose to do to-night.
From 8.0. to 8.30 listeners will hear many of the noises inseparable from the working of a great coal mine. The mine in question is the Nunuery Colliery, near Sheffield, and the microphone will be placed in the Park Gate Seam, at a depth of 750 feet below ground level. The distance from the pit-shaft to the face of the seam is one mile.
The various noises to be heard will be explained by the Manager of the mine, and will include :
1. COAL CUTTER. 2. SHOT BORER.
3. EXPLOSION OF SHOT. 4. FALL OF COAL.
5. FILLING OF TUBS. 6. NOISE OF TRAINS.
7. SIGNALLING APPARATUS OF
THE CAGES.

: Programme

S.B. from London.








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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
