: THE UNKNOWN WORKER '—I

Mr. HuaH THOMAS: Nail-making by Women
MR. HUGH THOMAS has collected some highly interesting information about a few of the traditional crafts that have survived from the past into the present age of machinery, and he will talk about them in a short series of morning talks this month. Today he tells of the midland craft of nail-making, carried on mainly by women workers with small forges in their back gardens, that produces and finds a market for nails of every shape and size, from the smallest tack to the large bolts that decorate the gates of His Majesty's prisons.
Future talks will tell of the out-of-the-way crafts of salmon-catching, lavender-water making, and chair-making.

: DESIGN IN INDUSTRY-I

A NOTHER short series of talks for September begins tonight. The general theme is the recommendation of the recent Gorell Committee, which issued last June a comprehensive report on design in industry. The report, supported by the artist-craftsmen in many vital industries, asserts that good design under mass-production conditions is needed by the public, economical to produce and essential as a basic selling point for British goods of quality. Many manufacturers have accepted the challenge, and undertaken to employ approved artists to design for commercial production. Modern tendency in architecture, interior decoration, and kitchen design will be discussed, and the manufacturers' and the consumers' views will also be represented.

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.
