An International Scout Rally
A sing song and an impression of the scene from Cannock Chase
Eleven countries have accepted invitations to send representatives to the Rally organised by the Staffordshire scouts. Scouts from Rumania, Poland, Hungary, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Denmark, Belgium, France, Eire, and Northern Ireland will spend a fortnight in England, mostly at the camp at Beaudesert Park, on the border of Cannock Chase. Tonight's sing song will include national songs sung by the foreign scouts.
The foreign guests will spend one night and two days billeted in the homes of English scouts, and pay visits to large works in Birmingham, to a coal mine, and to two of the stately homes of Staffordshire, by invitation of Lord Dartmouth (President of the Staffordshire Scouts' Association) and of Lord Harrowby.

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.
