A Broadcast from the Granary of Trewhitt Steads Farm, Coquetdale
After the harvest has been gathered in, in the northern part of Northumberland, a supper is held at one of the farms, and to this celebration come farmers and farm hands from a wide area. Speeches are made, tales are told, songs and dances follow one another. About this time of the year ' Kirn Suppers ' are held at many farms between Coquetdale and the Border. As many of the guests have to come long distances over wild and desolate country, the day chosen is as near the full moon as possible.
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.
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.
