: 'THE ESSEX I USED TO KNOW

' Smuggling Stories, Poachers, and the Dialect'
S. L. Bensusan
In this, the third and last of his talks on the Essex that has now almost disappeared, Mr. Bensusan will tell listeners of the bad old days when a ' copyhold ' cottage would be sold to farm-workers and then seized by the Lords of the Manor on the owner's death if his widow could not pay the legal fine; when the parson refused to allow Sunday cricket; and when low wages obliged the farm labourer to poach and steal.
He will also have much to say about the Essex dialect, smuggling tales, and the odd characters he has known.

: REGINALD FOORT

at the BBC Theatre Organ with Mary Cadbury (soprano)
During the war, Reginald Foort was a sub-lieutenant on H.M.S. Roberts, which for some time was based at Gorleston, near Great Yarmouth. Every other Sunday morning he used to play the organ at the local parish church on the occasion of church parade of all the naval forces. He was thus assistant organist to the very young and charming girl who played the organ on alternate Sundays. Her name was Mary Cadbury.
Foort left Gorleston in 1918, and they never met again . until Foort took part in a concert at Bristol at which Mary Cadbury was singing. He was so charmed by her voice that she is broadcasting as vocalist in his programme tonight.

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.
