Reginatd Arkell's version of 1066 and All That closes the first week of the seventh annual Malvern Festival. The Festival was established by Sir Barry Jackson in association with Roy Limbert, of the Malvern Theatre. It has usually included representative plays from Elizabethan times to the present day, with at least one first production each year. As well as 1066 and All Thar, this year's bill consists of Volpone by Ben Jonson, Trelawney of the Wells by Pinero, three Shaw plays - Fanny's First f/OT, Misalliance, and a new play, T'/!C &M;/'/t'/OM of the Unexpected Isles. Midland listeners heard the second act of 1066 and All That when it was having an extended run at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre last winter.
On the present occasion the whole of the play will be broadcast. Herbert M. Prentice is the producer for it and for the Matvern Festival plays generally.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
