Half Sick of Shadows by LEE TORRANCE with George Baker Jo Manning Wilson and Henry Knowles
In the fields the corn stood high
And in the distance met the sky,
As a knight went riding, riding by, On the road to London
Town.
And he did love a fair lady,
Whose heart was his entirely,
She waited for him faithfully
While he rode to London
Town.

: I Remember He Remembered

How far back can living memory go? Sometimes it needs only two generations to reach the beginning of the 19th century. ' The rebels have advanced as far as Derby.'
' " I have been sent by the Almighty to kill you," said the intruder. " Then don't you think we'd better protect the carpet? said the Duke.'
' In bad weather a foot-man would wait after breakfast with an umbrella to escort her down the garden to the closet.'
' He never went out to look after his sheep without taking his books, and he taught himself Latin.' Joan Yorke presents recently recorded memories about life in Britain long ago.

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.
