MRS. MACFARLANE, of Rag-Bag Lane, will introduce, comment upon, and generally bad-use the Turns
If you want variety of story, variety of song, variety of character, you could not do better than go to Aberdeen. The old and the modern jostle one another in the most delightful profusion, as listeners will hear tonight. You will note that the indefatigable Willie Kemp is going to treat us to a number of bothy songs or, to use his more pity phrase, a curn Corn-Kisters. Mrs. MacFarlane, that somewhat noisy and garrulous old woman, also hopes to get the ear of the microphone. By the by, can you guess who Mrs. MacFarlane is ?
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.
