Tonight this weekly feature, which has sought to do for the winter what ' The Week-End Out-of-Doors did for the summer, comes to an end. With lighter evenings, most people are taking less interest in pursuits that are characteristic of cosy fireside nights.
Experts have contributed to this series on such pastimes as contract bridge, table tennis, billiards, indoor photography, stamp collecting, and dancing, as well as useful tips to young hostesses on simple cooking for informal bridge parties. It is hoped that some of these experts will be heard again next winter.
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.
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.
