What is it that inspires and impels men and women to create and achieve ? Under this heading will be broadcast from time to time talks reflecting the needs of our times and the ways in which people are attempting and often succeeding in fulfilling them.

: 'THE TOWN THAT STAYED AT HOME'

Recorded impression, with J. B. Priestley as commentator, of the holiday entertainments at the Leicestershire town of Loughborough. Arranged by J. B. Priestley and produced by Leonard Cottrell
Loughborough, a typical industrial town situated within a few miles of the very centre of England, invited J. B. Priestley to help in organising their ' Holidays at Home ' campaign. J. B. Priestley cooperated with the town's committee and spent two or three days at Loughborough himself as an unofficial Master of Ceremonies and observer of the scene. Special attractions included a military display, a grand all-star Variety show, a visit by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, fun fairs, a circus, treasure hunts, concert parties, and military bands. A van accompanied Mr. Priestley during his visit, and in this feature he presents a vivid and lively cross-section of the time he spent in Loughborough.

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.
