: SEARCHLIGHT ON SPORT'

The stop press for sporting news, - illustrated by personalities of the moment

: Thirsty Work

An evening of local and popular songs, recorded in a Wensleydale inn by the BBC Mobile Recording Unit
The singers are:
Joe Alderson, the landlord of the King's Arms, Redmire, Yorkshire
Kit Jones, bookmaker
Ernest Heseltine, farmer
Jim Lambert, quarryman
Dick Balderston, farmer
Bill Balderston, farmer
Bob Bushby, roadworker
and regulars of the King's Anns
Production by Maurice Brown
Maurice Brown continues his search for music of the taproom, and this evening takes you to Wensleydale, where, at the King's Arms, Redmire, you will overhear a typical Saturday evening in the 'snug'.
Here are farmers, farm labourers, shepherds, the village blacksmith, and the one-armed keeper from Bolton Castle, which stands on the hillside above the pub. Under the vigorous conductorship of Joe Alderson, the landlord, this congenial company loves to spend an evening in uproarious song. Few of them have ever been trained in singing, but you will probably all agree that their rendering of typical North Country songs rivals any professional choir in enthusiasm.

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.
