: 'There goes the Buzzer'

A Play specially written for broadcasting by PAT FORREST
(From Newcastle)
It is the aim of the author to try to show in this play what happens to various People in a miner's family under conditions of part-time employment. Pat Forrest has had great experience of the mines, and in his recent tour of several mining districts he was struck by the good humour cloaking the grim poverty of these people's lives and the pluck they show when they are up against it.
Many dialects may be traced among miners owing to the fact that years ago people from all parts came as pioneers to the coalfields. Here in Durham you may hear Irish, Welsh, Scottish, Lancashire, Yorkshire all discernible in a lingo known as ' Pitmatick '.

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.
