: A Poultry Club Carries On

F. J. Fitzpatrick
One can imagine no more uphill game than trying to carry on a poultry club under war conditions, with members in the Services or engaged in civil defence, and food both expensive and difficult to get. But the Downham Poultry Club, near Bromley, Kent—one of the oldest poultry clubs in England—has succeeded in keeping the flag flying in spite of the blitz. The members still turn up and keep going despite the bombs. Members of other poultry clubs who have been finding it hard to carry on in wartime may find encouragement in this talk by the secretary of the Downham club today.

: 'THE LONDONERS'

A play specially written for broadcasting by James Parish
Produced by Howard Rose
Here is a topical play about life as it is now lived in London by many of its inhabitants. Mrs. Purvis, her sixfeen-year-old son Douglas, and one of her lodgers, Mrs. Hallin, make their way to the Tube to spend the night there. Mr. Purvis, who has already reserved their places, goes off on his A.R.P. duties, and we see characteristic types of Londoners by night, brave, cheerful, undaunted and determined that we shall win the war.

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.

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.
