: What's in the Wind?

For twelve months Richard Clements gave weekly surveys of Midland news and views under the title ' What's in the Wind ? ' These have now become a fortnightly feature, alternating with the ' Out and About' talks by C. Henry Warren, which deal with people rather than with movements. Mr. Clements, who is a native of Birmingham, became Midland Advisory Officer to the National Council of Service after serving for ten years as general secretary of Birmingham Citizens' Society. During and just after the War, he was engaged in Red Cross and relief work in France, Serbia, Czccho-Slovakia, and Poland.

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.
