The scene of this unusual broadcast is a very old gabled house, once a moated grange, attached to a preceptory of Knights Templars. The company will include the host and hostess, and a party of five or six others. The ghost stories to be related and broadcast have all been vouched for by the persons who supplied them, and listeners will be able to judge their value as evidence. Mr. Pitchford, who has arranged the programme, is one of the best-known Midland broadcasters and writers for radio. He lives at Lamport in Northamptonshire, and compered the first of the Midland village broadcasts. Later, he was the narrator in the Midland ' Choir and Cloister ' series.

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.
