2.5 'Our Village'
A Special Course for Rural
Schools devised by EDITH E. MACQUEEN , Ph.D.
' Our Village'
In this new series listeners are going to hear all about an English village, thanks to the intelligent curiosity of a boy called Robin who has lived all his life in a town, but not long ago came to live in the country-with his uncle on a farm near the village of Stanwellstead. Because Robin is intelligent he wants to find out all he can about his new home, the things to be seen, the nicest walks, the occupations of the villagers.
Listeners will hear what the post-man has to tell him and what he learns from ' the innkeeper, the policeman and the blacksmith, the schoolmaster and the vicar, and especially from old Gaffer Brown. You will like Gaffer, who is so old that he can remember things that happened years before most people in the village were born-at least, that is what he says

: TEA-TIME TALKS

We have always painted our faces
Maisie Marshall
This new series, planned on similar lines to its popular predecessor ' Five O'Clock ', will have a slightly more feminine interest and perhaps strike a rather lighter note. Occasional talks will be included on such fascinating topics to women as fashion and the care of the skin and hair.
Maisie Marshall, who sets the ball rolling, gave a talk on fashion" through the ages in ' Five O'Clock' last April. In her undergraduate days she acquired a reputation for making dresses, properties, and scenery for various dramatic activities at Lady Margaret Hall. She organised and produced Arthur Bryant 's pageant of St. Fridesiuide's Fair at Oxford, and has done the same kind of work for every kind of pageant he has written since. She has made a name for herself as a designer and maker of costumes for pageants and ballets in cities as far apart as London, Melbourne, and Johannesburg.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
