Its Legend, Story, and Song by George Blake
Music by Purcell J. Mansfield
Conducted by Kemlo Stephen
Production by John Gough
The Clyde is the third in the Scottish Rivers ' series which began with the Tweed on March 14. This broadcast has been fitted into Coronation week because the industrial development of the Clyde valley is one of the most important facts in the history of Scotland since the accession of the House of Hanover.
The Clyde rises in south-east
Lanarkshire and flows in a north-easterly direction past Lanark, Hamilton, and Glasgow, merging in the Forth of Clyde below Dumbarton. If the accepted source of the Clyde is Daer, the length of the river is about 100 miles.
People are apt to think of the Clyde in terms of its lower, highly industrialised stretches, but the upper valley is as beautiful as that of any other Scottish river. George Blake , who has written the programme, was one of the Coronation commentators and will also be a commentator on the occasion of the Royal visit to Edinburgh in July.

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.
