Mr. BERNARD GRANT: 'Photographing the Messina Earthquako '
Mr. Bernard Grant, who tonight tells listeners of the Mossina earthquake, is yet another of the famous Grant brothers, all celebrated photographers on The Daily Mirror, to talk in this series. He will relate how he arrived at Messina on the morning of New Year's Day, 1909, to find a shattered city with sixty thousand of its inhabitants buried under the ruins. Dead and dying, soldiers comforting a little child pinned under fallen masonry, malodours, flood and pestilence, heroism, miraculous escapes. From the time of his arrival when he was held to ransom by two Sicilians who took him ashore, throughout his itinerary of the stricken city with minor earthquakes taking place all the while, to the hour of his departure on S.S. Lombardia, with two thousand refugees on board, and another earthquake occurring at sea, Mr. Bernard Grant 's experience was thrilling, frightening and gruesome. Perhaps one of his most vivid memories is the finding of a poor live hen hanging by its feet to a hook in the ceiling of a demolished house, waiting for the pot. To listen to Mr. Grant tonight should be more exciting than the most flesh-creeping story by Edgar Allan Poe.

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.
