: 'On the Road'-2

Gypsy PETULENGRO
There is a fascination in gypsies, as Borrow knew. They have other ways of life than ours. They live nearer Nature. They know the herb that is medicinal, as a dog does ; they tell the ' dukkerin '. or your fortune ... and when a real Roman, like Gypsy Petulengro, comes to the microphone, the whole of Britain seems to listen and writes him so many letters that he can't answer them, and has to beg listeners not to write any more.
In his last 'On the Road ' talk, which he gave in July, he described how every Romany chal, or young man, chops, or deals, in articles of increasing value until he attains his ambition to own a grye, or horse. He divided the fraternity we know as tramps into distinct classes with different ways of earning a livelihood, and told of succulent dishes to be had for nothing if you know where to look.
Surely no one broadcasting today has greater experience to draw on than Gypsy Petulengro, or greater ability to hold an audience ... Tonight he is to talk on customs on the road.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
