: THE DAY'S TREK

by David Anderson
' To move a survey gang of anything up to eighty boys, each carrying a regulation load of sixty pounds plus his own bedding, and get them a distance of thirty miles a day through a famine area calls for a certain amount of organisation. This was the problem that confronted me when I set out early in 1932 to build the. beacons on the Primary Chain of Triangulation between Bauchi and Yola in north-east Nigeria.'

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Family Planning Association by the Rt. Rev. Mervyn Stockwood, Bishop of Southwark
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to the Bishop of Southwark, [address removed]
The Family Planning Association is a voluntary organisation, founded in 1930. It has, at the' present time, 299 clinics where married people who wish to space their families receive medical advice, and where advice is also given to involuntarily childless couples.
In addition to the work of the clinics, the Association has set up and maintains Marriage Welfare Centres. At these centres practical help is given, on a wider scale than at the clinics, on many aspects of married life and parenthood -medical, socio-medical, and psychological-and there are also opportunities for training and research by doctors and others working in these fields. The Association is appealing especially for support to extend the work of these centres.

: Olga Lindo with Hugh David and Beryl Calder in 'FRAMLEY PARSONAGE'

by Anthony Trollope
Adapted for radio in twelve episodes by H. Oldfield Box
EPISODE 2
Characters in order of speaking:
Produced by David H. Godfrey
Against the known wishes of his patroness, the Dowager Lady Lufton (of Framley Court), Mark Robarts, the young vicar of Framley, is visiting Chaldicotes, the Barsetshire home of his worldly friend, Squire Sowerby, whose acquaintance Mark has made through that great friend of his school and college days, the young Lord Lufton.
But hardly has Mark arrived at Chaldicotes, than he has been persuaded by Sowerby into accepting a further invitation, and one which he knows must cause her ladyship still greater displeasure. And now he must write to Fanny, his wife, and tell her that his return is to be delayed by yet another week, and the sinister reason-that he is going to stay at Gatherum Castle, with the Duke of Omnium himself.

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.
