: Diary of a Village

One year in Heddington, Wiltshire. A documentary serial in eight parts. 6: Of Feuds and Flags, Pheasants and Fetes
May brings a double set-back for village schoolmaster JOHN STOT-HARD. Voted off the Parish Council, he is foiled in his scheme for securing the Chairmanship to his friend and ally-publican BILL PITT. The farmers' lobby is triumphant.
Heddington Church becomes a Consistory Court for the day, as the Chancellor of the Diocese adjudicates beneath its rotting beams and loose slates on whether the Elizabethan flagon can be auctioned off to defray the cost of a new roof.
Lord Shelburne's estate is a hive of activity. It's pheasant-rearing time. His Lordship's gamekeepers need all their skill to bring the baby birds to the peak of their condition - in time to face the guns in the autumn. Directed and narrated by DAVID PRITCHARD

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

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.
