' Makers of Scotland'
5—' Scott—The Man who saved our
H. J. C. GRIERSON , LL.D ., Emeritus Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature in the University of Edinburgh
There are few countries which have given the world so many enthralling stories as Scotland, and it is a matter of opinion whether the authentic ones are more interesting than those that have partly sprung from the imagination. The life of Sir Walter Scott , which Emeritus Professor H. J. C. Grierson will tell this afternoon, never has lost and probably never will lose its appeal to listeners of every age. Its main outline is well known, but who can explain his genius both in verse and prose, and who does not stand amazed at his fortitude when financial ruin overtook him in 1826? But perhaps his greatest service to Scotland was his vivid recreation of the past and its influence on European literature.

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.
