A programme arranged by Robin Whitworth
There is always a romance attached to a hill. There are in the Midlands no mountains to compare with those of Wales, nor moors to rival those of Scotland ; but there are many hills which are known as landmarks throughout the length and breadth of England-The Wrekin, Wenlock, the Malvems, Charnwood, Bredon, and the Stiperstones. These are but a few, but about each of them there is a tale to be told. Tonight, some legends of the Midland hills will be told by men who live within their shadow.
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.
