: North of the Tweed

Talk by Ian Finlay
Ian Finlay, journalist, art critic, and broadcaster, steps into the monthly t Mdi lion of 'North of the Tweed' which has been, so competently built by George Blake. These soliloquies on Scottish affairs might be said to have touched the peak of good 'regional broadcasting', and those who have heard Finlay at the microphone will probably agree that he is just the man to maintain a standard of Scottish interest that is also acceptable ' South of the Tweed .
Finlay was born in New Zealand of Scottish parents, and was educated at Edinburgh. He has contributed to numerous periodicals and journals, writing chiefly on Scottish art, the importance of form and design in industry, and - his favourite subject - the infinite possibilities of museums in popular education.

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.
