: 'CHELSEA'

by Reginald Beckwith and Andrew Cruickshank
Chelsea has attracted artists and writers since the far-off days when Sir Thomas More shadowed his Utopia in a Chelsea garden, and Holbein gave a further immortality to that nobleman's most loving and pleasant family.
The Chelsea authors of this programme have attempted to reveal the fascination of this village background chosen by so many of England's famous men.

: A SONATA RECITAL

Albert Sammons (violin)
William Murdoch (pianoforte) For two great soloists to play together with perfect ensemble is not such a frequent occurrence as one would expect. The more individual the artist, the less he is capable of giving way to a partner. With Albert Sammons and William Murdoch, however, we have two first-rate soloists who are at the same time born chamber music players. They have played together for many years and are in sympathetic accord with each other's style and outlook to a marked degree.

: ' STAND AND DELIVER!'

A dramatic account of the history of highway robbery in England
Written and compiled by Leonard Cottrell , produced by John Cheatle
Highwaymen rival pirates in the claim to be considered the world's most romantic ruffians. (Or did until both were outdistanced by the gangsters of the not-so-very-brave New World.) The romantic trappings-black half-mask, huge pistol, and three-cornered hat (your typical highwayman is an eighteenth-century man)-would alone make the highwaymen the most picturesque of thieves even if we had no stories of Turpin's ride to York and Duval's coranto with his beautiful victim. And, as Leonard E. Cottrell points out in his introductory article on page 12, the highwayman could at least claim as an excuse ' the harsh social conditions that helped to produce him '.
This evening's programme will recall not only the romantic side of the highway industry (with such distinguished figures as Falstaff and Prince Hal, and the men who were privileged to rob Ben Jonson and Horace Walpole ) but the very real inconvenience it caused the mere decent, honest citizen.

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.
