: Metro-Land

JOHN betjeman 's journey along the Metropolitan Railway in celebration of suburbia, hailed in 1973 as ' an instant classic '.
' Live in Metro-Land' was the slogan in the 20s and 30s. The Met, I the first steam underground in the world, bought up the farmland as it journeyed out from London's Baker St to farthest Bucks. The houses and gardens it helped to build set the pattern for suburbia. Sir John Betjeman travels through
Metro-land in search of the poetry and variety of its architecture and activities. He finds homes of sin and mystery in St John's Wood, a nature trail in Neasden, and London's answer to the Eiffel Tower in Wembley; midsummer revels in Croxley Green and a mighty Wurlitzer in Chorleywood. Producer EDWARD uirzoeff

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.
