Recollections of the Jarrow March
In October 1936, 200 men marched to London from Jarrow on Tyneside as a protest against the devastation of their town by unemployment. With them on the 280-mile journey they carried a petition for work - and the hopes of everyone they knew for some relief from the continuing misery of the Depression.
The Jarrow March became a symbol of desperation and of the determination to overcome it.
The marchers still remember: the sunshine as they left the Town Hall; the blisters they developed as they travelled south; the songs they sang; and the food they were given - better than many of them had tasted for months before.
Today, the marchers, their wives and neighbours relive the legendary march, and their sons and grandsons describe the spirit of Jarrow half a century later.

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.
