G M. BOUMPHREY
FOR THIS, his last talk in the present series, Mr. Geoffrey Boumphrey has explored Hadrian's Wall, the name given to the remains of the Roman fortifications which extended from Bowness on the Solway to Wallsend on the estuary of the Tyne. The wall was erected by order of the Emperor Hadrian under Platorius Nepos , Governor of Britain, A.D. 122 to 126.
In all probability forts were thrown up in the first place about four miles apart, then enlarged, and finally connected by a stone wall. Then further posts at every mile (milecastles) with intervening turrets, were built. The whole was erected to the north of an earthwork (vallum) which served as a visible delimitation of the civil frontier of Rome. Here and there traces have been found of a wall of turf which preceded the stone wall. It is not known that the wall was held by the Romans after A.D. 383.
The large number of listeners who have been interested in this series may care to increase their knowledge of Roman Roads by reading some of the books on the subject published at popular prices : ' Roman Britain,' by R. G. Collingwood , and ' The Story of the Road,' by Professor J. W. Gregory , both also published in Braille ; ' The Roads of England,' by R. M. C. Anderson ; ' Everyday Life in Roman Britain,' by Marjorie and C. H. B. Quennell , and ' The Story of the Wheel,' by Mr. Boumphrey himself.

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.
