: Transatlantic Call - People to People: No. 31: Aberdeen, the Granite City

by Elizabeth Adair and Robert Kemp.
Produced by Moultrie R. Kelsall.
Broadcast simultaneously in the Forces programme and to the United States, in collaboration with the Columbia Broadcasting System of America
On July 27 Mr. John G. Winant, receiving the freedom of the city from Aberdeen, disclosed that he too came from a 'granite city' - Concord, in New Hampshire. The granite industry of the U.S.A., centred in the States of Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire, was partly created by the granite masons and quarrymen of the North East of Scotland, who used regularly to journey across the Atlantic, and many of whom settled in the United States. This is only one of the links with the U.S.A. to be found in Aberdeen... The programme will tell something of the life of Aberdeen in peace and war. There are actually ten Aberdeens in North America.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
