Second of six journeys into the spring countryside in search of wildlife and the natural world around us.
Stream and Hedgerow with Gordon Beningfield wildlife artist
Roger Lovegrove ornithologist
David Streeter ecologist
Spring has come late to this valley in mid-Wales. Snow is still lying on the hilltops, and the trees are just starting to come into leaf. But down near the stream the banks are studded with primroses, and robins are feeding their downy young in the nest.

Tonight from BBC North East Farewell, Jobling by ARTHUR APPLETON
On Whit Monday, 1832, during one of the early struggles to establish a miners' union on Tyneside, Nicholas Fairies , a reactionary local magistrate, was clubbed to death. A Jarrow miner, William Jobling , was found guilty of the murder and hanged at Durham.
Guilty, yes -but how justified was the tarring and caging which preceded the gibbeting of Jobling's body high above the waters of the Tyne?
The story of Will Jobling's reluctant crime and subsequent humiliation is told by Thomas Hepburn the first leader of pit-men in the North East.

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.

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.
