: ESTAMINET ECOSSAIS'

Let the soldiers sing!
An impromptu entertainment in which listeners are irivited to take part
Devised by Hamish Luke and Jack House
Produced by Moultrie R. Kelsall
The ' Estaminet Ecossais' is, of course, imaginary, but it is hoped to reproduce faithfully the atmosphere of a typical sing song in any estaminet in the North of France. Lieutenant Hamish Luke , while in such an estaminet, found that musical accompaniment to which men could sing popular songs was in great demand. With this in mind the ' Estaminet Ecossais ' comes on the air, and it is hoped that your voices will not be idle.

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.
