The Larks at Tangmere Sang Then
Is this our war, this sitting still?
NAAFI wads and long stewed tea,
Dropped and spilled for the 'scramble' bell,
Pilots hurtle skywards, we.... We sit and wait.
Before the last war, a young man called Eric Marsden joined the RAF Volunteer Reserve. Knowing that he could not become a pilot because of bad eyesight, he became an engine fitter servicing fighters and bombers. As part of the ground crew he watched the young pilots as the odds mounted against them. His feelings about the war, his sense of isolation and sometimes complete helplessness, overflowed into a notebook of poetry. Eric tells'his story. Producer ANGELA HIND Stereo

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.
