Over to Stratford-upon-Avon
James Pestridge and two young friends, Brenda Radbourne and Michael James , pay a brief visit to Shakespeare's birthplace and tell you what they see there.
Jim Pestridge recently took two Midland children, Brenda Radboume , aged 13, of Birmingham and Michael James , aged 12, of Dudley, to some of Shakespeare's boyhood haunts at Stratford-upon-Avon, and made recordings of their impressions. Pestridge has painted a sound picture of the town as it might have been seen through the eyes of young Shakespeare. From a boat on the Avon Brenda and Michael fed the famous swans and took a look at the ancient Clopton Bridge. They went to the old mill near Stratford Church, and paid a visit to Charlecote Manor in an attempt to discover the actual room where the young Shakespeare is said to have been charged with deer stealing in Charlecote Park. Charlecote is now National Trust Property. They also had a back-stage peep at the Memorial Theatre, and of what remains of the old theatre.

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.
