: Expedition on a Bicycle: Myfanwy Evans

There are only two ways of seeing the country: one is to walk, the other to cycle. Myfanwy Evans chooses the latter means of propulsion, and this afternoon she will try to convey the enjoyment she had when she recently made a cycling tour of the Chilterns. The expedition started with an empty haversack, which soon began to swell and bulge with odds and ends, some of which will be shown on the television screen. She met some interesting people, too, and one or two of them will be with her today in the studio.
Myfanwy Evans is the wife of John Piper, who has given several television talks in the past. She studied English at Oxford where she was president of the University Women's Swimming Club. Now she is editor of Axis and a contributor to periodicals such as Time and Tide and The New Statesman.

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.
