A Play by L. DU GARDE PEACH
In an earlier play in this series Mr. L. du Garde Peach showed you the Romans on the Dee. Today he is to take you about a hundred miles farther north to Newcastle, and show you the Romans there.
Most of you have probably heard of Hadrian's Wall, and many of your parents listened to the talk about it by Mr. Geoffrey Boumphrey a fortnight ago. Ask them to tell you about it. The wall runs from Carlisle on the west to Wallsend, just beyond Newcastle, on the east, and was built by the Romans as a line of defence against the raiders from the north.
Nearly two thousand years ago the Romans were building ships on the Tyne to fight against the Danes, and, as you all know, modern ships of steel are being built there today.
The past and the present are linked up in this play with all Mr. du Garde Peach's skill. He knows how to make history interesting and how to tell a story. You will hear how Claudius, all those years ago, seemed to see into the future, though, as always happens, he was laughed at then.

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.
