Gib Lightfoot has come to the conclusion that his uncle, 'Mad Hugh,' is not so mad after all. Especially when, carrying messages to Wareham Town, he meets Raoul the minstrel and recognises his voice as one he heard in the night at the Mill. Travelling the road to dance at fairs with Gamelin and Maudleyn, Gib gets embroiled in a fight between Raoul and some toughs who are egged on by the sinister Brother Martin of Bindon Abbey.

: SOCIAL CLASS IN BRITAIN TODAY

An investigation into the changes in class relations and class values by Mark Abrams
Director of Research,
London Press Exchange
2-Social Mobility and the Mobile Person
Although a distinct class structure still exists in Britain, the divisions are becoming blurred and the shape of the class system is changing because there are now increasing opportunities for people to move from one class to another. In this second talk Mr. Abrams describes what he calls the two main channels for this social mobility. He examines some of the effects that, he believes, this change in social status has upon the individuals concerned and on society as a whole. The talk includes two recorded interviews.

: FRANCK

Sonata in A played by Max Rostal (violin)
Colin Horsley (piano)
Although Cesar Franck 's popularity continues at an unwarrantably low ebb amongst musicians, his Violin Sonata remains universally popular. This may be due to its profusion of splendid melodic ideas, and the entirely spontaneous and fruitful way in which they are developed from movement to movement : Franck's use of ' cyclic form' seems more happy than usual here.
Like all Franck's finest music, the Sonata was written towards the end of his life, being completed in 1886, four years before his death. He sent it as a wedding present to Ysaye, who gave the first performances, in Brussels and Paris, with Madame Bordes-Pene .

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.
