: Famous towns in the back areas 'VALENCIENNES'

A. G. Macdonell
This is the first of a number of talks in which A. G. Macdonell will tell you something of the history and the life of various well-known French towns in which men of the B.E.F. may very well find themselves. Macdonell is a witty observer. Perhaps you remember his England, their England', a riotously satirical view of England by a visiting Scot. You are sure to hear him in this vein during these talks, and as for his knowledge of France and the French-you have only to read his Napoleon and his Generals' to assure yourselves of it.

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.
