Anne Nightingale features listeners' letters on almost any subject.
' I was always under the misapprehension that the British male was solid, reliable, considerate, sincere and a born gentleman. That, I might tell you, is absolute baloney. They are in fact rude, inconsiderate, weak and most unreliable. The men nowadays have got so used to women being women's libbers that they have forgotten how to treat a woman like a lady ... There is nothing nicer than to be courted in an old-fashioned respectable way.'
' The British girl is no English rose as is often depicted by visitors from abroad. She seems to have a one-track mind, concerning clothing and the poor types of pop music, especially in conversation with other people. The modern girl is droopy-shouldered. feeble-minded, unintelligent and totally incapable of making up her mind on any point.'

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.
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.
