' The Song of Nippy the Lobster', a Story by KITTY SPENCER
The Hayward was one of the most important offices of the old manorial courts. Minchinhampton, in the Cotswolds, is one of the few places where it survives in actuality. There the Lord of the Manor made over the Common to the National Trust, and the duties of the Hayward include keeping a detailed record of all animals belonging to the Commoners which are put out to graze, and branding each of them with the Minchinhampton sign, an ' H ' enclosed in a heart. The principal branding day in the year is May 13, and formerly a fair used to be held around the Old Lodge Inn on that day.

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.
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.
