The programme arranged and produced by OWEN REED
The programme will feature the development of transport in this town on the Great North Road, and will also reflect the history of the town, which was, in the Middle Ages, one of the six richest in the country. The road transport of the eighteenth and twentieth centuries will be contrasted, and aviation, as the transport of the future, will be represented by a broadcast by members of the staff of the Central Flying School at Wittering. An old coaching inn, ' The George ', will be the chief ' O.B.' point. The townspeople, led by the Mayor, have taken a keen interest in the preparation of the programme and local Committees have given much help to the producer.
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.
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.
