A Programme of Memories from Fonthill in Wiltshire
"If you have journeyed westward from Salisbury, by way of Dinton, and through the Teffonts and Fonthill Bishop, you will have come perhaps upon Fonthill Gifford."
Devised by Norah Richardson
Among the people and things remembered are :
An Old Shepherd - who began by earning a shilling a week, and worked for the same master for 65 years
Young Mozart - aged nine, who gave music lessons to William Beckford, aged five
Alderman Beckford - Lord Mayor of London, friend of John Wilkes, and father of William Beckford
Fonthill Abbey— "an edifice unparalleled in domestic architecture of this country, and not to be surpassed by that of any other"
William Hazlitt —who said of the Abbey, "It is hardly necessary to build a cathedral to set up a toy-shop"
The Great Feast - in 1797, with 1,000 guests and 10,000 spectators
Lord Nelson - one of the many distinguished visitors to Fonthill
Lady Emma Hamilton— who "finely executed a variety of vocal pieces in her expressive and triumphant manner" and William Beckford—, owner of Fonthill
Abbey, author of "Vathek", and almost an Arabian Nights figure

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.
