: ' The Woodmen of Arden '

The 150th Annual Meeting
Described by E. G. HILTON
The Woodmen of Arden were founded in 1785 at a meeting presided over by the Earl of Aylesford (Captain) ; also present were Mr. York, Mr. Lewis, Mr. William Dilke , Mr. Charles Dilke and Mr. Digby. In the following year the Freedom of the Society was granted to the members of the Toxophilite Society, of London, and, a year later, to the Royal Company of Archers in Scotland. Since its beginning it has been the rule that whoever hit the gold first at the grand target became Master Forester for the year ensuing, and whoever hit the gold second became Senior Verderer. The present Duke of Aylesford has been Master Forester for this year. The principal Wardmote, held during the week of the broadcast, includes shooting for the bugle, the arrow, and the bow (presented by the Royal Company), shooting at the butts, and on this occasion the triennial match against the Royal Company of Archers (King's bodyguard for Scotland). This is the seventeenth of these matches, which are shot at nine score (180 yards).

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.
