: SEEING HUNGARY ON HORSEBACK

Sylvia Stevenson
According to Sylvia Stevenson , there is still one country in Europe where the horse is king: Hungary. ' Motors are anachronisms ; they simply don't fit it. Not that there aren't good metalled roads-there are, if you want them. But it's easy to avoid them altogether'. In the course of her ride she seems to have avoided them very successfully indeed.
She did much more than ride, however. She drank the national drink, white wine and soda, danced the czardas, visited a cheese factory, and had ' a real Hungarian dinner of about fifteen courses.'

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.
