: 'The Road to the West'

A dramatic monologue, being the audible meditation of a traveller by road from London to the Land's End
Written and spoken by FILSON YOUNG
Produced by PETER CRESWELL
TO travel hopefully with Mr. Filson Young
-L is better than to arrive with many a Baedeker-stuffed bore, and when the journey is down the road to the West-' from London to Land's End '—what more could the stationary hiker desire? All the fun of travel with an enchanting companion, without the trouble and expense of moving ! ' The Road to the West ' is described as an audible meditation. As Mr. Filson Young sits at the wheel of his car moving westward, you hear the things he hears ... birds singing, the organ of Exeter Cathedral.... And you hear as well the thoughts that flicker across his mind as he journeys past the pageant of Southern England. This is a new type of radio entertainment, uniting the best of the guide-book and the travel-talk with that exciting sense of ' being there ’ that a good radio play can give. Listeners who missed ' The Road to the West ' last September should hear it tonight.

THE WIRELESS SINGERS
RUDOLPH DOLMETSCH (Harpsichord)
RUDOLPH DOLMETSCH, who is no stranger to listeners, is a gifted member of a famous family. His father, Arnold Dolmetsch , is not only a high authority on all matters relating to old music and musical instruments, particularly of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, but a practical one. He actually makes these instruments—violas, recorders, clavichords, harpsichords, and many others -and makes them very beautifully indeed; as a craftsman he has had few rivals in any age. But he not only makes them, he plays upon them. and within his own family, all of whom are accomplished executive musicians, he has revived the domestic ' Consort ' of the seventeenth century. The family lives at Haslemere, in Surrey, and every summer for years now a Dolmetsch festival of old music, which musicians in all countries of the world have been glad to attend, has been a feature of English musical life.

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.

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