A Radio Impression
Devised and Produced by H. LYNTON FLETCHER and DAVID GRETTON
St. Giles Fair is one of the oldest and largest in the country—indeed it claims to be the biggest which is held on a public thoroughfare. In the Middle Ages it used to be held on Walton Fields and it was originally associated with the Saxon Saint Frideswide , whose millenary will be celebrated this year. It became connected with St. Giles owing to the fact that the Abbot of Godstow, who was owner of the manor of Walton, was also the patron of St. Giles Church, Oxford. The mobile recording van is to be used for this broadcast.

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.
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.
