: ROUGH RIDING UP TO DATE

John Snagge visits a mechanised cavalry regiment and helps to put a light tank through its paces from Aldershot
John Snagge has done many things on the air-under water, on the water, in the air, under the earth. and through fire-but he has never yet driven a tank. He is to try his hand at this this evening in a broadcast from Aldershot. The tank-a light one on the establishment of the 1st King's Dragoon Guards (one of the most recent regiments to be mechanised) will push off down Gas Chamber Hill (and very steep it is) to Long Bottom. There, on comparatively flat ground, he will attempt to drive the tank himself. There is no dual control. He will be absolutely on his own, apart from being able to receive directions through a speaking tube. He will also fire the two Bren guns with which the tank is armed. Snagge will have a microphone with him. Listeners will hear the various questions he asks of the personnel, and their replies to him.
The tank will then be driven by its driver over rough country, negotiating a ditch and a hedge, and Michael Standing will describe its course.

: 'ROMANCE IN GLASS CASES'

2, King Charles's Shirt
Beatrice Curtis Brown
Nearly three hundred years ago on a cold January morning a short, slender man walked through the alleyways of Whitehall to a platform built out from the great Banqueting Hall. The man was Charles Stuart , King of England, who had come to die in full view of thousands of his subjects. The morning was cold, and when dressing King Charles had told his valet, Herbert, to bring him a warm shirt, since he did not wish to shiver and appear nervous before the onlookers. The shirt was brought, a high-necked garment of sky-blue. Dressed in this, and a pair of black breeches, Charles I was executed. The shirt is to be seen today in the London Museum together with two other relics that Beatrice Curtis Brown will describe.
The two others are a scrap of paper and a bed, both of them connected with the Royal House of Stuart. The scrap of paper bears the names of King Charles's family printed by one of the first printing machines in England, while the bed is that in which James Stuart-the Old Pretender-was born.
Beatrice Curtis Brown spends much of her time in London museums, and often conducts parties round items of interest purely as a hobby.

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.
