: They Look at Wales

Talk by Professor B. Ifor Evans
The Welsh Department of the Board of Education recently published an anthology of prose and verse bearing the above title, intended for young Welshmen and Welsh-women in the Armed Forces as well as for pupils in secondary and senior schools. The selections are drawn from an infinite variety of writings throughout the ages on Wales and its people. It is to be looked upon as a scrapbook, pages of casual gleanings to be turned over in moments of leisure.

: ' PLEYBER THE FISHERMAN'

A story of Brittany under the Nazis, written by P. H. Burton , from material supplied by Andre Varan quien. Produced by T. Rowland Hughes The Bretons and the Welsh have much in common—legends, traditions, aspirations : above all, the quiet, rugged strength of the Celt. The characters in this story are Bretons, and the scene is laid in a small fishing village on the Breton coast. But, just as in Robert Kemp's production of French Manor, the Scottish accent became an effective equivalent for the French of Normandy, so in this .production the Welsh accent will be used as an appropriate equivalent for the Breton speech.

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.
