: Verse Reading

The Author's Address to his Auld Dog,
Hector (James Hogg )
From ' Winter' (James Thomson )
The Ewie wi' the Crookit Horn (
John Skinner )
(From Edinburgh)
James Hogg. affectionately known as the Ettrick Shepherd, followed that vocation for many years and later combined it with farming- It is, however, as a poet that he is remembered and in the first of the poems which Miss Gordon will read he talks to his dog as if it were human. The extract from James Thomson 's ' Winter ' is one of the best known parts of that poem. 'The Seasons ', of which ' Winter ' is one of the sections, did much in their time to stimulate interest in the countryside. The Ewie wi' the Crookit Horn ' has been a favourite with children and grown-ups for a long time. This verse reading is intended to refer to some aspects of the pastoral life.

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.
