' The Boot and Shoe Trades'
A discussion between P. Sargant
Florence and A. W. Lyne
Except for a period of war service, A. W. Lyne has been engaged in the boot and shoe industry, both as a factory worker and as a trade-union official, since 1897. He has served on the Northampton Borough Council since 1920, was chairman of the Technical Education Committee for eight years, and is now chairman of the Housing and Planning Committee. He is also president of Northampton No. 2 Branch of the Boot and Shoe Operatives' Union, and a member of the National Executive of the Union, while a further important qualification for his taking part in this evening's broadcast is the fact that he is chairman of the Northampton Employment Committee...

with S. P. B. Mais
A visit to Uttoxeter
A .programme arranged by David Gretton
Uttoxeter presents grand material for such a lively broadcaster as S. P. B. Mais. He will undoubtedly refer to the market place, where Dr. Johnson did penance for having disobeyed his father when he was a boy.
But literary associations apart,
Uttoxeter is a town full of legends and history, just the right kind of subject for a programme of this kind. It stands on the site of a Roman settlement and its charter dates from 1252. The district was the scene of some of the legendary exploits of Robin Hood.
The programme will not confine itself to the past, however. The principal industries today are the making of agricultural implements, dairying, and the quarrying of alabaster (which has been carried on since Roman times), and these will probably give the microphone plenty of material.
Admirers of S. P. B. Mais and of this series, who cannot listen this e.vening, should note that a recording of this programme is to be broadcast tomorrow at 12.25 midday.

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.
