The early history of Trinity House, which is the Corporation responsible for maintaining the lighthouses, lightships, and pilot services of England, is lost in the obscurity of the late middle ages, and it is only from the time of Henry VIII that we are. able to trace its evolution from a charitable institution to what is probably the most important maritime organisation in this country today.
The programme will introduce light-house-keepers, crews and officers of several East Coast lightships, and those key-men in the development of British shipping-the London river and South-ampton pilots.
'Trinity House' was broadcast on Wednesday in the National programme
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.
