'News'
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
'... The sole privilege of writing, printing, and publishing all narratives, advertisements, mercuries, intelligencers, diurnals, and other books of public intelligence was conferred by Royal grant on a ' surveyor of the Press ' in 1663. Fifty years later a writer was pointing out : ' There are published weekly about 44,000. newspapers, vis. Daily Courant, London Post, English Post, London Gazette, Postman, Postboy, Flying Post, Review and Observer.' In 1792 it was written in the Memoirs of the Life of James Lack ington : ' ... If there is anything in the newspapers of consequence, that draws many to the coffee-house, where they chat away the evenings.' , This afternoon you are going to hear something about the beginning of newspapers, how they grew and the sort of news they gave.

: TEA-TIME TALK

'Taking a Walk Round Your
Own House'
H. Pearl Adam
Readers of the Radio TIMES particularly will look forward to hearing a talk by that well-known journalist and writer on subjects of interest to women, Pearl Adam , whose name must be very familiar to them through her regular contributions to the Home Pages.
The subject for this broadcast talk came to her accidentally. She went to see over a friend's new house and noticed that all kinds of things were wrong. So it occurred to her that possibly many things were wrong in her own home. She came back and found plenty of them. Then it seemed probable to her that most people grow so used to the things around them that they cease to notice them. Hence this talk.

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.
