'A Picnic at Plumsnitch' JACKO and PETER PIPER have a holiday
Miss Dorothy Round , the Women's Singles Champion, lives at Dudley, and was given a civic welcome on her return home after winning the championship at Wimbledon last summer. She has spent the 'winter in the East, playing tennis in China and Japan, and she returned to England in April.
Owing to the leg injury that developed on the way home, she had to scratch from the Singles in the Tally-Ho Tournament at Birmingham at Easter, but she won the Mixed Doubles with D. W. Butler , the Worcester County champion, with whom she is to play at Wimbledon if well enough. It is also hoped that she will be able to play in the Priory Tournament at Birmingham at Wnitsun.

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.
