: 'NIGHT TAXI'

Reflections from a London Rank
Herbert Hodge
(An electrical recording of the talk broadcast in the Regional programme on September 22)
From the two talks that Mr. Hodge has already given listeners have learnt much about his life. He passed the stiff and compulsory geographical examination set by the police in six months, though it takes some men two years. He has been driving a London taxi for nine years. He prefers driving by night, he says a taxi driver owes much of the freedom of his life to the police, and he is acquainted with the works of W. H. Davies. Mr. Hodge's passengers; the London coffee-stall, which he considers is Utopia come to life ; people going into fashionable night clubs with more money than they know what to do with, and the down-and-out without the price of a bit of bread and cheese-reflections on these and a hundred other things have revealed to listeners much of the speaker himself. In his last talk today he is to conclude his reflections from a London rank.

: THE WORLD GOES BY

A Radio Magazine in which all sorts of people will broadcast comment and information on various topics of interest among the events and personalities of the day-tonight and every Wednesday
Introduced by F. H. Grisewood
Nobody knows until the very last moment each week exactly who will be speaking in this programme. It all depends on what turns up in the world's news. And the ' cast' will be as varied as the subject-matter. But a settled point is that on the last Wednesday in each month listeners will be going down into the country for a programme mainly devoted to the interests of the country-dweller.

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.
