: Inn Signs Through The Ages

Some examples of Inn Signs from the Exhibition now being held at the Building Centre described by Fred Taylor, R.I.

This is the first time within living memory that an exhibition of this kind has been held. In all, there are over two hundred inn signs on show. Some are old-there is one that creaked in the wind way back in the reign of Charles II-and some are modern. Amongst the latter there are some particularly fine examples of a happy blend of commerce and art. All these signs have been taken down specially for this exhibition.


Presenter: Fred Taylor

: Starlight: Leonard Henry (Comedian)

A few weeks ago Leonard Henry was seen at Alexandra Palace in a test transmission, but this is the first time that this puckish personality has appeared in the regular programmes. He is well known all over the country to theatre-goers and sound broadcast listeners as a versatile artist who can delight an audience in concert party shows, Variety, revue, and musical comedy.

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.
