Samuel Rutherford Crockett (1860-1914) was born in Kirkcudbrightshire. At school Crockett revealed an unusual gaiety of disposition, a vivid imagination, and a fondness for boyish adventure. In 1881 he decided to enter the ministry of the Free Church of Scotland. In addition to his preparatory studies he continued to write, and it was at this time that he first felt an impulse towards novel writing. His ' The Stickit Minister', ' The Raiders', and The Lilac Sun-bonnet ' were very successful and are still read by large numbers ofr people.
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.
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.
