M. A. O'Brien , Ph.D.
This is the last of this series of talks, and in it Dr. O'Brien will deal with a selection of the more interesting place names, especially those which bear evidence of former conditions of life and customs, and which are linked with historical or semi-historical personages. Loughbrickland is an example. In the two previous talks in this series, Dr. O'Brien dealt among other things with the influences of other peoples and languages, of which Celtic was by far the strongest.

' A Country Schoolmaster'
This is the first of a new series of talks in which a variety of speakers, all satisfied with their work, will tell you why they are convinced that they have what is, to them, the ideal job.
Tonight's speaker claims that after forty years' experience in rural schools he has found a great measure of happiness of the quiet and permanent kind, as distinct from fleeting and momentary satisfaction, in his job. He admits that the teacher without a grievance is a rare bird, hut he suspects that this attitude is but superficial. Teaching, he contends, has the privilege and satisfaction of contributing today'more than ever before, not only educationally, but morally, to the building up of the nation's greatness.

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.

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.
