: SPORTING GUNS ON TEST

A Microphone Tour of the Birmingham Proof House described by M. F. K. Fraser.
The classes of arms dealt with by the Proof House include sporting guns of all types-punt guns, military rifles, machine-gun parts, revolvers, and cattle killers. Sporting-gun barrels are submitted to a firing test in specially designed chambers, the largest of which is designed to fire 110 barrels at once. The Proof House was established by Act of Parliament in 1813. Up to 1861 all guns made in Birmingham were the product of hand labour and the industry was divided into many small trades.
The commentator for this broadcast, M. F. K. Fraser, is the chief reporter of the Birmingham Mail.

: Regional Programme

On July 14, 1937, in the Midland programme, a detective play was broadcast, entitled Chance is No Artist, which was stated to have been adapted from 'The Avenging Chance ', a short story by Anthony Berkeley. This adaptation had not been authorised by Mr. Berkeley and the BBC regrets that it was broadcast without his consent.

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
