: Ponies of Britain

Founded in 1952 by the late Miss Gladys Yule and Mrs Glenda Spooner, the Ponies of Britain organisation is now world famous. Glenda Spooner gave information which resulted in the introduction of the Parliamentary bill creating minimum values for the sale of ponies abroad in an effort to stop the export of British ponies for slaughter.
The Ponies of Britain Stallion Show, on which this film concentrates, is held annually at Ascot. There are nine native breeds of ponies which have inhabited these islands since Celtic times. They form the basis of all British riding ponies, for crossing them with various proportions of thorough-bred or Arab bloods they produce the best riding ponies in the world. The annual Ponies of Britain shows provide us with the cream of the champions.
The commentary is spoken by HAROLD WILLIAMSON

: The National Dream

Building the Impossible Railway 6: The Last Spike
Before the new railroad is complete, it helps quell the Riel Rebellion. Canada's wide open spaces, breathtaking scenery and sheer vastness, will all seem more accessible after the last spike is driven. The date is 1885 and the Canadian Pacific Railway at last spans Canada from sea to sea. The ' railway general,' Van Home, accomplishes the impossible ahead of schedule. Many Canadians at the time thought it would never happen. It almost didn't, and today there are two Canadian intercontinental railroads as well as a massive air transport network. Yet towards the end of the last century, it really was the Canadian ' National Dream.'

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.
