A Piny in One Act by EDWIN LEWIS (First
Presented by EDWARD P. GENN and played by THE LIVERPOOL RADIO PLAYERS Cast
THE scene is the kitchen of a dwelling-house in -*- Hyacinth Court, which is a shun. Over the wall at the end is a heavy forge. It is half-past nine in the evening, and there is a temporary quiet. Tom Dixon. a young forge hand, is reading by the fire, waiting to go on night shift. Strangely enough, it is a volume of the works of Shelley. He is reading aloud.

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.
