: TOYS OR MODELS

' A model you've made yourself is infinitely preferable to one glued together out of pre-formed parts because all the fun is in the patient work with knife and sandpaper.'
HUGH POPHAM , whose miniature model of the Cutty Sark is now on board its original at Greenwich, confesses that, as toy-maker to his family, he has had to find a compromise between working-strength and scale.

1847-1906
Edited by Edith Craig and Christopher St. John
Arranged for broadcasting intwelveepisodes by Mollie Greenhalgh
Produced by Audrey Cameron
CHAPTER6
In Chapter 5 Ellen Terry told how she first acted with Henry Irving in 1867. Soon after this Ellen left the stage for six years. Her life in the country with the architect Edward Godwin was quiet, happy, and uneventful. Two children were born to her-Edith and Gordon Craig. But money was short, and when Charles Reade invited Ellen to return to the stage to play the heroine in ' The Wandering Heir,' she accepted and emerged from her retirement.

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.
