: THE VILLAGE GREEN

A programme written by Harold Taylor and Edward Benbow
Arranged and produced by Robin Whitworth with Hugh Morton , Chris Gittins , Godfrey Baseley , Edward Benbow , David Compton , Stuart Vinden ,
Monica Stracey , and Dorothy Summers
To recapture the spirit of England in days gone by, and to show how this spirit has always been kept alive on the village green, is the aim of this programme. On the green, men met to barter, to test their weapons, to make trials of strength, and to keep festival with folk dance and song. First the Puritans and then the Enclosure Acts brought changes, but the village green still remains a centre in peace-time for cricket, the meet of hounds, and the travelling circus ; and in wartime for local defence activities.

Goossens's Fantasy-Quartet was written in 1915 and dedicated 'to my friends the London String Quartet
Philip Heseltine (Peter Warlock ) has recorded that in 1916 the quartet ' was sent in MS. to Frederick Delius , who pronounced it the best thing he had seen from an English pen ; and it is not improbable that the new resources revealed and suggested by this work may have served to break down his apparent aversion to quartet writing, since his latest work has been cast in this form '.

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.
