: Along the Roman Road'

G. M. BOUMPHREY
AS THIS TALK of Mr. Boumphrey's, as well as the one he gave last week, deals with his journey along the Fosse Way, it might be as well to say a word not only about the Fosse, but also about the three other ' royal roads ' in Britain —Icknield Street, Eming or Ermine Street, and Watling Street. These four roads were mentioned in documents and by writers of the eleventh century, and were distinguished from all other existing roads because they enjoyed the special protection of the king.
Though the precise course of these roads, as they existed, is a matter of contention, early charters tell us that Icknield Street ran along the Berkshire downs and the Chilterns; Ermine Street almost due north through Huntingdonshire; Watling Street north-west across the Midlands from London to Shrewsbury, and the Fosse Way diagonally to it from Exeter to Lincoln, intersecting it at High Cross, four and a half miles south-east of Hinckley, in south Leicestershire, at a point sometimes called ' the centre of England.'
The derivation of the four names is unknown. The first three may be from English personal names. Fosse seems to be the Latin fossa in its rare sense of an embankment of earth or stones.
Apart from Icknield Street, they all seem to have been made or developed by the Romans, and the former perhaps was a prehistoric track, and was probably used by them.
Last Friday Mr. Boumphrey spoke of the south portion of the Fosse Way which he had covered as far as Cirencester, in Gloucestershire. This evening he will speak of the northern half on to Lincoln, which he has covered during the last seven days. He has passed through Stow-on-the-Wold, near Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, through Warwickshire, past Warwick and Rugby, through Leicester, on to Newark-on-Trent in Nottinghamshire, and ending up at Lincoln.

: Short Story

'Murder in Broad Daylight'
By G. D. H. COLE
IT IS not often that a writer so distinguished as G. D. H. Cole , who has given to the world serious publications on social and political issues, turns also, and successfully, to detective fiction.
He is University Reader in Economics at Oxford ; Vice-President of the Workers' Educational Association ; Hon. Secretary of the New Fabian Research Bureau ; and a member of the Economic Advisory Council. Publications to come from his pen since 1913 hear such titles as ' The World of Labour' ; ' Chao3 and Order in Industry ' ; ' William Cobbett ' ; ' Robert Owen ' ; ' A Short History of the British Working Class Movement'.
Nor is it the case that when he collaborates with Mrs. Cole he seeks a lighter field for his labours, for she has written on topics just as serious, and is as distinguished as her husband. For instance, she was co-author with him of ' The Intelligent Man's Review of Modern Europe ', published last year. Yet these two, separately and together, write thrillers with fecundity and zest. Their latest, ' Death in the Quarry ', the Crime Club selection for May, is being reviewed as we go to press.

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.
