' The Journey to the South '
ERIC PARKER
The southward journey of the migrant birds began when the parent cuckoos left in July, and continued in August when the swifts departed. Today the journey has been completed by others of the migrants, the nightingales for instance. There are, however, many that are still on their journey, such as the chiffchaffs, which left a week or so ago, and the swallows and martins, which are gradually leaving. By mid-October practically all the summer migrants will have flown or be flying south, and the winter visitors who fly from the cold North will be arriving to spend the winter in the warmer climate of these islands.

2.30 British History
From the Eleventh to the Fifteenth Century ' Domesday Book'
WRAY HUNT
In this, the first of the term's British History broadcasts, listeners will be taken back to the eleventh century England of William I and Domesday Book. Dramatic treatment of the subject will bring to the microphone typical villeins of the time, who, on the arrival of the Domesday Commissioners, will be heard discussing the conditions of the land and their lives in the light of the new census and property valuation. From the picturesque circumstances under which the Domesday Commissioners carried out their tasks the scene shifts to a modern version of the occasion, complete with census papers, income-tax, and discussions on land valuation.

: 'OLD DEVONSHIRE HOUSE. BLOOMSBURY'

Major Benton Fletcher
Hidden away in a typical Bloomsbury street is a house belonging to history, Old Devonshire House, bought by Major Benton Fletcher , artist, historian, and musician, who has presented this relic of the eighteenth century to the National Trust, to be preserved for ever.
In last week's Radio TIMES 'The
Broadcasters ' gave a sketch of the history of the house, which was built for the gay Lord Cavendish in 1667 and occupied by him until he was created Marquess of Hartington and Duke of Devonshire in 1694. From cellar to roof there is a secret shaft running up it, which once concealed Lord Russell, who made his escape through it and an underground tunnel. Panelling is there—punctured in one place by darts thrown by tenement occupants in the twentieth century.
In the old kitchen, which was used as a forge before Major Fletcher bought the house, the Devonshire Singers sing madrigals from time to time ; and in almost every room there is an eighteenth-century harpsichord, bought by Major Fletcher, to say nothing of virginals dating back to the time of Queen Elizabeth.

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.
