"Ensign Gaff"
A serial play in six parts adapted by Violet M. Methley from her book ' Lydia Gaff '
3 — ' Come, Lasses and Lads '
Production by Josephine Plummer
"It's about time now that I, Flan Calloway, said a piece about what happened at Boonesborough. Jem Boone had it all her own way while I was at the Fall hunting-camp, but I came back in time for the next to-do, even if that Redskin skunk did slash my arm I heard how Jem had found Ensign Lydia Gaff in the Wilderness, and then about our water having run out - so that things looked mighty ugly for standing a siege. It was just as dawn came that this Ensign Gaff girl surprised everybody. She'd been as mum as a mouse all night, but now she says, as pert as you please, "I've been thinking —and there is a way to get all the water we want!"

: UNOFFICIAL PILGRIMAGE

Talk by Father Columba Cary-Elwes O.S.B. ,
Last month a group of individuals, members of various churches — Anglican, Lutheran, and Orthodox— visited Rome. There was no thought of conversion to Rome, but simply to do penance and to pray for unity at the great shrines of Christendom there. Faither Cary-Elwes, who took part in the pilgrimage, gives an account of his personal reaction* to this unusual event.

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.
