: ' Cutting Loose '-I

According to Thomas Hood ' Some minds improve by travel, others rather resemble copper wire or brass which gets the narrower by going farther '. And there is that old proverb : ' If an ass goes a-travelling he'll not come home a horse'. There is no denying the good sense of those two sayings but nevertheless the prospect of travel and a holiday away from home rarely fails in its appeal to the imagination. In this ' Cutting Loose' series various speakers will describe their views on the best way to spend leisure, be it a long summer holiday or a casual ' afternoon off' from work.
This evening P. T. O'Hare , who is
Agricultural Inspector at Ballymena, is going to talk about an adventure he had some years ago in Fermanagh with a companion of his. He has an interesting story. They were spending a holiday at Enniskillen, boating on Lough Erne. Getting stranded on one of the Islands they did not get away until very late at night. When they returned to the town their only reward was to be clapped into a police station, where they had to spend the night because of the curfew restrictions that were in fashion at the time in Enniskillen.

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.
