Just what do the inhabitants of Crewkerne do on Punkie Night? What would the Vicar of Penny
Stratford do with his Fenny Popper ? Are you prepared for the antics of Mischief
Night and the Oyster
Feast? Why do the villagers of Ottery St Mary go in for tar barrel rolling? And to whom would you pay Wroth Silver on St Martin's Day? Angela Rippon takes a look at the traditions of autumns past and present. Producer Bridget Apps
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.
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.
