: ' St. Giles Fair, Oxford'

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.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
