: The Glory That Remains

The last in a series of programmes with Robert Erskine Walls That Speak
Splendid temples, baths, and forums grew up to adorn the Roman city of Lepcis Magna , on the Libyan coast; the theatre and the amphitheatre provided the citizens with entertainment. We can still follow in detail the fortunes of Lepcis for four centuries : from its early commercial success, to its gradual eclipse beneath the sand.

The Burston School Strike
' We want our teachers back: we want justice' ran the placards carried by the schoolchildren when they came out on strike in the village of Burston in Norfolk. It was 1 April 1914, but the children were not fooling: they were convinced that their much-loved teachers, TOM and ANNIE HIGDON , had been unjustly dismissed on a trumped-up charge.
Their dismissal split the village. On the one side were the school managers, led by the vicar and well-to-do farmers: on the other side were the farmworkers and railwaymen of Burston, whose children were on strike.
The Burston School Strike became a national issue - and the strikers won. With the help of labour organisations from all over the country the Higdons built a strike school on the village green - and continued to teach there for over 20 years. Narrator James Cameron

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.
