: ' ECCENTRICS'

' Frederick Augustus Hervey
(1730-1803), Fourth Earl of Bristol and Bishop of Derry '
Shane Leslie
(From Northern Ireland)
Frederick Augustus Hervey , Earl of Bristol, whose sumptuous travels are said to have been the origin of the numerous Hotels Bristol all over the Continent, was as queer a bishop as ever presided over a see. He filled his palace at Downhill with so many curates that a whole wing was set aside for them and christened ' The Curates' Corridor '. One of the curates had a toast which he regularly drank, to the great joy of the Bishop : ' A Rot amongst Rectors! '.
One evening after dinner, the Bishop-who was no bigot-obliged the Presbyterian and Church of Ireland clergy to ride races on some sands near the Palace. The next day he preached a sermon on the evils of horse-racing, illustrating his argument with references to the previous day's sport.

: 'THE LITTLE MERMAID'

by Hans Andersen
Adapted for broadcasting by Marianne Helweg
Cast
Music chosen and arranged by Maurice Brown
Production by Val Gielgud
' The Little Mermaid' will be broadcast again tomorrow in the Regional programme at 8.0
Andersen's story ' The Little Mermaid ' is just a hundred years old this year, for it appeared (with ' The Emperor's New Clothes') in 1837. It is one of the earliest of Andersen's tales, and one of the saddest. For the story combines two favourite fairy-tale themes: the granting of a wish that turns out to have fatal consequences (the theme on which W. W. Jacobs 's ' The Monkey's Paw ' is such a brilliant variation), and the tragedy of an immortal renouncing immortality for love of a mortal.
The heroic little mermaid is really too charming, too gentle a little creature for the harsh fate her creator has given her. But there was a strain of harshness and bitterness in Andersen and it shows itself here in the torturing of a figure that he obviously loved.

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.
