: Our Town-2: Under Twenty Parade

hands over tonight's programme to the Younger Generation of Welwyn Garden City
Five weeks ago the under-twenties of Welwyn Garden City were challenged to devise, script, and portray their own picture of the place they live in. Auditions have been open to all comers, and the result can be heard in this programme.
Parade has provided mobile recording facilities for outside interviews and commentaries, the use of a studio for dramatised scenes and narrative links, professional advice when requested, and the services of a producer throughout the day's studio rehearsal when the programme was assembled and until the final recording was made. Responsibility for choice of material, and for the scripting from start to finish has been in the hands of a committee of under-twenties chosen at a general meeting. During the programme the under-twenties will interview Flora Robson, the stage and screen actress, who was one of the City's first residents, and R. G. Gosling, Chairman of the Welwyn Garden City Development Corporation.

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.
