: THE KITCHEN FRONT

A talk about what to eat and how to cook it, by ' Mrs. Wilkes' of The
Black Dog'
Who should know more about what to eat and how to cook it than Aggie—' Mrs. Wilkes ', the popular hostess of ' The Black Dog ' ? This celebrated hostelry was opened in 1937 and came on the air in October of the same year. Primo Camera, Patsy Hendren , Leslie Howard , and other celebrities dropped in to see the famous couple, and partake no doubt of the pasties and what not she had so tastefully prepared.
The Black Dog shut down on the outbreak of war, but soon opened its doors again. And so* Mrs. Wilkes-Aggie-Sunday Wilshin-has had experience of the difficulties of catering with food rationed, controlled, or beyond one's purse. Listeners everywhere will welcome her again on the air every morning this week.

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.
