: OCTAVIA HILL, 1838-1912

Sir Lawrence Chubb and Jean M. Thompson
(Housing Estates Manager)
Octavia Hill , who was born on December 3 one hundred years ago, was one of the great pioneers of housing reform. It is indeed probably true to say that modern housing estate management is largely due to her valuable work during the latter half of the nineteenth century. Sir Lawrence Chubb , who has been actively concerned with the question of open spaces for most of his life, will give his reminiscences of Octavia Hill whom he knew well, and Jean M. Thompson , who is housing-estate manager to the borough of Southall, Middlesex, will discuss the effect of the pioneer's work on modern estate management.

: EDNA'S FRUIT HAT'

A romance by John Pudney
Cast
Production by Leslie Stokes
Here is another of those delightful quasi-fantastic radio plays which bear the unmistakable stamp of their author, John Pudney. Edna's Fruit Hat-which has, by the way, already been produced on American radio-is the story of the magnificent fruit hat that Edna wore at the funeral of the mother who had crushed her all her life. Just what happened to the hat must be left for the listener to find out. He may, however, be interested to know in advance that it is an occurrence of no usual nature, and quite as deliciously absurd as the advent of the elephant, Uncle Arthur, who. in the most recent Pudney radio play, took up his abode in a typical suburban household.

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.
