: Diary of a Village

One year in Heddington, Wiltshire. A documentary serial in eight parts. 5: To Represent the Local Peasants....
The vet returns to the Browns' farm where two more cows fail the TB test. Brindle and Whitesocks go off to the knacker's yard.
' Auntie ' Vi, who spent Christmas in hospital, dies. The village mourns her passing. But spring also brings its joyful moments. Children dance around the May-pole and in warm sunshine roll eggs down the precipitous terracing of King's Play Hill.
A month after Lady Day the tenant farmers assemble to settle accounts with their landlords the Money-Kyrles, and in early May it's the local elections. There are ten candidates and only seven seats on the Parish Council. Three villagers are going to be bitterly disappointed.

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.
