: THE VAGRANCY ACT OF 1824

and The Case of Thomas Parker who died in Winson Green Prison, Birmingham in 1933 The story, told by Charles E. Stidwill , of how the public voice changes the unjust law
Script by Jenifer Wayne
Production by Philip Donnellan in the BBC's Midland studios
At midnight on the last day of May 1933 a police constable on duty on the main Coleshill to Coventry road flashed his lamp on a steam roller parked for the night. Under it he found a man asleep. The next morning Thomas Parker, an ex-Serviceman out of work, was charged with sleeping out without any visible means of subsistence and was sentenced by the magistrate to fourteen days imprisonment with hard labour for Vagrancy. Two days later he died a violent and despairing death in prison. For time the case weighed heavily on the public conscience, but even so the law would not have been changed if it had not been for the determination and patience of the man who spoke in Parliament for the public conscience and pursued the matter to its proper end.

: THE FRIDAY RECITAL

Friedrich Gulda (piano)
At the age of twenty-two, the Austrian pianist Friedrich Gulda has already revealed himself as an artist of outstanding capabilities. He has been acclaimed in most cities of Europe, and has just returned from his third successful tour of the United States. On his first visit to this country, three years ago, he created « deep impression: in his playing of Beethoven, especially, it was remarked how youthful virtuosity was controlled by an intellectual grasp unusual in one so young.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
