: The Craftsmen: A Master of Silver

One of the great advantages of silver goblets is that you can go on dropping them and in 50 years still have a set intact.
Christopher Lawrence is the only silversmith to have been awarded the title 'Craftsman of the Year': he has received this honour three times. He brings a feeling for modern design to a craft rooted in medieval techniques.
Because of silver's great intrinsic value, his work is sought after both for its investment value and its artistic interest.

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.
