Some Footnotes to the Holidays
' So, au revoir; we may return once more;
For when the summer holidays begin We'll take the boat, and, passing by thy shore
We may drop in.' While Glasgow holiday-makers are coming back to ' auld claes and parritch ', the good people of Edinburgh are rushing to the coast and elsewhere for the summer break. Tonight the captain of a Clyde pleasure steamer, a Glasgow housewife, a mountaineer, and perhaps John R. Allan will tell their experiences of the great exodus. Mr. Allan, who has achieved fame with his newly published book, ' Farmer's Boy expects to see his auntie safely into the Stonehaven train and get back to the studio in time to describe the scene at Waverley Station, Edinburgh.
A railway station is an interesting place at any time, and at holiday time more than any other. Thousands of eyes on indicators, masses of people. Father with the hand-luggage, mother with baby, children with spades and buckets ; young men and women with cameras, old ladies asking the porters ridiculous questions. Bustle, excitement. Crowds sweeping from platform to platform..... Coming and going. Tanned faces coming back from the holidays, pale faces about to leave. Retrospect and anticipation are the keynotes of tonight's programme.

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.
