: The Microphone at Large

with S.P.B. Mais
A visit to Stow-on-the-Wold
A programme arranged by David Gretton
St. Edward's Hall, from which the broadcast comes, contains a number of interesting sixteenth and seventeenth-century relics.
It is hoped to include among the speakers an old Cotswold shepherd, who has been at work in the district for sixty years, and taken more prizes for lamb-rearing than any other man in the Cotswolds. He will tell of his life and wages and food (home-cured bacon and cabbage and suet pudding are his staple meal), as well as giving some interesting and little-known facts about sheep.
Another interesting personality will be an old slater - or slatter, as they are called locally - who will describe roofing in the Cotswolds. Formerly oak pegs were used for the slates, but these are now out of fashion. He was once sent over to America with 250,000 Cotswold slates for houses for Edsel Ford.
Other speakers, men and women, will describe life in the Cotswolds present and past; and there will be some Cotswold songs.

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.

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