: The Younger Generation AS WE SEE IT Bolton

Six weeks ago ' Parade ' invited the under-twenties of Bolton to devise and plan a radio feature showing life in their home town as seen through their eyes. In this programme they bring together people, events, and problems of the present day, with a reminder of the past and a glimpse of the future
Presentation is by local under-twenties -narrators, interviewers, and actors having been chosen from auditions open to all.
' Parade' has provided mobile recording facilities for outside interviews and commentaries, and the use of a studio for dramatised scenes and narration, together with professional advice when required. Responsibility for the choice of material and its use within the programme has been in the hands of a committee of under-twenties chosen at the first general meeting.

(Leader, John Sharpe )
Conductor, Charles Mackerras
Programme produced by Michael North
The story of Sir Nigel Playfair is largely the story of the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith; and the story of the Lyric is largely the legend of ' The Beggar's Opera.' In this production Sir Nigel set a keynote with the scene and dress designs of Lovat Fraser and the stylised simplicity that still makes itself felt today. He also set the fashion for eighteenth-century revivals, and from the old ballad operas ' The Duenna,' ' Love in a Village,' and 'Polly' stemmed the present-day completely English pieces ' Midsummer Madness,' ' Tantivy Towers,' and ' Derby Day,'all brought alive by the magic touch of Sir Nigel Playfair.

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.
