Jeremy Nicholas continues his journey through the sound archives unearthing ancient recordings of famous figures of the last 100 years or so, and finding out whether the voices match the images we have of them today. Poets and Writers.
This week's distant voices include such great names as Dylan Thomas , Alfred, Lord Tennyson, A A Milne and Enid Blyton.
Late-night listening with social topics, stars and human interest stories as related by the media and the public at large.
Including at 10.45 What's That Noise? and at 11.45 a review of tomorrow's papers. Plus the classical feature.
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.
