: 'LONDON LOG'

A Metropolitan Miscellany for the North
F. Buckley Hargreaves
This series, the fifty-fourth of which is to be broadcast this evening, was started in October, 1935, and every fortnight since then F. Buckley Har greaves, a Northerner himself, has kept Northerners in touch with what was going on in the capital. Provincials are always very much interested in London, even if they rarely have a chance to get to it, and it was with this in mind that this series was started, the first of its kind in the BBC programmes. It is best described as a radio ' London Letter', spoken by a Yorkshireman who knows the city well and yet still remains an exiled provincial at heart.
The popularity of these talks can be gauged by the amount of correspondence after each broadcast. Hundreds of Northerners, before coming to London, write to Hargreaves to find out where to go and what to see.
This evening's broadcast will include a description of an exhibition of Valentines and relics of Henry Irving at the London Museum.

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.
