The '45 Rebellion
The Scots Army Occupies Derby
An account, told in the manner of an eye-witness, by S. P. B. Mais
Derby was the southernmost point reached by the Scots in the Rebellion of '45. Bonnie Prince Charlie entered the town on foot on December 4, taking up his residence at the Earl of Exeter's House, and a party of Highlanders took possession of Swarkestone Bridge.
The Scots were only 127 miles from London, and the Prince was all for proceeding South, but Lord George Murray proposed a retreat as hopes of French help or an English insurrection against the King had not been realised. Clan chiefs supported Murray's policy and on December 6 the retreat northwards began. This brief occupation of Derby will be described this evening by S. P. B. Mais in the manner of an eye-witness account.
Lord George Murray 's narrative relates that the Prince in an advance was always first up in the morning, but he did not leave Derby to join the retreat until his men had been several hours on the march, and as he did so ' an air of melancholy marked his exterior

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.
