: ' O Romani Rommerin'

A Gypsy Wedding Celebration broadcast from a dell in Hertfordshire with a description by THOMAS WOODROOFFE
Tonight in a dell in Hertfordshire, in the open air, there is to be a Romany Rommerin, or a gypsy wedding ; no fake affair, but a real one that would take place whether it was to be broadcast or not.
Against a background of trees and two or three caravans, in the presence of the tribe, a Romany chal is to be wedded to a Romany chi in true Romany fashion, and Petulengro, a Romany first and a great broadcaster second, is to marry them.
The young couple will approach
Petulengro, each bearing a branch of an oak-tree, acorn-covered, and the tribe will be asked to assent to their marriage. Bride and bridegroom will tie a knot in a silken cord, swear to be faithful to each other, and the girl will swear to work for her man until she shall be mulled, or dead.
Each then will break a stick. Then the bridegroom will try to break two sticks tied together. Then they wil! kneel at his feet and he will cut their hands to mingle their blood, then bind them with a silken cord as a token of lasting companionship.
Finally, first the bride and then the bridegroom have to leap over flames. ... And so they are married.

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.
