: The New Foresters

A series of four programmes featuring people who live and work in the New Forest. 3: Art and Craft
This week Dennis Skillicorn meets Monica Coleman , a self-taught artist who found that the influence of the forest inspired her to start painting. With her old dog Cindy as her only companion she seeks out locations where she can spend a tranquil day, preferably where a lazy stream wanders beneath overhanging birch trees. Dennis met Monica at Moyles Court, near Fordingbridge and nearby he found Ronald Hayward busy thatching an old cottage. Ronald is carrying on a family tradition that was started by his great-grandfather and will continue through his own son Brian. For the Haywards it's an old craft that will never die.

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.

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.
