with music
' Gypsies'
This programme is an effort to present in sound and narration the story of the Gypsy tribes in general and the Gypsies of England in particular. From the greatest area of their concentration in the far plains of Hungary, the roving Gypsy bands have wandered to all four corners of Europe-dark-skinned, clannish folk, with an abundant culture and custom of their own. It is unlikely, however, that every caravan seen in an English lane contains true Gypsies, and the programme will endeavour to discuss how many of our English nomads are genuine. The broadcast will be conducted to the singing of Gypsy music, the relating of Gypsy custom, and the talk of Gypsy folk who will be present in the studio to describe the lives they lead.

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.
