: FATHER AND SON

by EDMUND GOSSE read by Alec Chines arranged for broadcasting in fifteen episodes by H. Oldfield Box PART 3
The writer has told how, when he was five, his parents moved to a larger house at Islington, and their circumstances were more comfortable. But for their son, in this rigidly puritanical household, there have been none of the ordinary pleasures of childhood and no association with other children; only a constant conditioning for a life of ' dedication to the service of the Lord ' for which they believe him to be destined. Two notable incidents have now shown him that his father is not infallible. But small wonder that his health is poor and that he is subject to constant nightmares.

: ODD JOB FOR A POET

CHARLES JONES found that the job of a hire-purchase inspector was full of interest and surprises. Some of his experiences resulted in strange adventures, not least of these was when he interviewed a customer in a freshly dug grave in a cemetery. ' The job,' he says in conclusion, ' made life exciting and anything but humdrum.'

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.
