: The Scottish National Sheep-Dog Trials at Craigendoran

An Eye-Witness Account by W. B. PRENTICE
Farmers, shepherds, and others may differ in their views of the utility of sheep-dog trials, but to the layman these exhibitions of perfect understanding between man and dog are always astonishing. He knows that by patient reiteration of sound and sign an intelligent dog may be taught to do some extraordinary things, hut the separation of one sheep from a flock and the driving of it gently but inevitably to an agreed point seems almost miraculous. In the course of their duties on the hills many sheep-dogs run between sixty and seventy miles a day without apparent fatigue unless the ground is stony, and perform, perhaps in a less dainty way, many of the evolutions seen at big sheep-dog trials.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
