Social life in the farming districts of Ulster during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries is the central theme of this new series of weekly talks, of which tonight's is the first.
Ivor Herring's material is drawn from contemporary writings and from information he has personally collected while doing archaeological work in Ulster. He deals with the Ulster of the past, but a past which survives into the present, whether as folk memory or as tradition in architectural and domestic design. Roads, farm houses, kitchen equipment, and farm implements will come in for discussion in his introductory survey tonight.

Henry James Campbell of County Down, who died in 1889, left the whole of his estate of £200,000, subject to certain legacies and annuities, for the foundation of the college which now bears his name. The trustees, after purchasing part of the Belmont estate, secured the services of W. H. Lynn as architect for the college buildings. Since the opening of the school the remainder of the Belmont estate has passed into the hands of the trustees.
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

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.
