: The Philpott File: Another Little Drink: 1: The Brewer and the Beer

A series of three film reports by Trevor Philpott

If we include every man, woman and child, every teetotaller and every tiny tot, the British public spends on average £2 a week on alcoholic drink. Well over half of that goes on beer.
The jolly brewer and his good honest ale have been part of the British tradition for 300 years. But in the last generation momentous changes have taken place in the brewing industry. The national giants have been born. What is left now of the famous families who were known as the Beerage? What has happened to the beer they brewed? How much of the jollity and how much of the quality is left?

: The Twenties Revisited

with Rene Cutforth
The first of three weekly films.
' They were on the wing - in flight from guilt. They flew on the wings of Peter Pan -they were determined not to grow up; on the wings of alcohol and cocaine - they were determined not to sober up; on the wings of speed, of sex, of the spirit of competition ... They never touched down until the final crash-landing in 1929.' Thus, in a highly personal account, RENE CUTFORTH sums up the spirit of The Twenties-the decade which began in the shadow of the first Great World War and ended with the stock-market crash which plunged us into the Depression. These hectic years saw the start of commercial aeroplanes, bobbed hair, Noel Coward , the BBC and the Picture Palace.
Written and narrated by RENE CUTFORTH

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
