Talk by Dennis Griffiths
The firebrick industry grew up on the borders of Cheshire and Flintshire, where the special clay needed as raw material was to be found. - One of the firms still manufacturing can trace its history back to 1737, and another to 1792. Dennis Griffiths belongs to a family which has had intimate connections with both firms for five generations.

: J- H. SQUIRE CELESTE OCTET

Music by J. H. Squire
Danse grotesque
Eventide in Autumn An Ant's Antics
God walked in my garden The Panda's Parade It is nearly 28 years since J. H. Squire founded his famous Celeste Octet, but his musical career began long before that. At the age of twelve this adventurous character was playing the cornet in the streets of New York, an act typical of many that have succeeded it in a long and varied life. Squire, in fact. has always been a soldier of fortune, and has had a life as full of ' rough stùff' as of quiet music. His Octet, which has been called the father of all small orchestras, holds the records of going on the air without an audition and of having had three dates fixed before its first broadcast.

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.
