: SCOTTISH COOKERY

' Hogmanay and Ne'er Day'
Elizabeth Hughes Hallett
In the old Scotland, Hogmanay and Ne'er Day had no challengers as the most important season of the year, and many were the fine things that the housewife prepared for the occasion. Mrs. Elizabeth Hughes Hallett, who is giving this series of midday talks, was formerly a teacher at the College of Domestic Science in Edinburgh. She has already discussed the cooking of delicacies for children's parties and for the Christmas dinner. In the new year she will look at Twelfth Night and its ceremonies from the Scottish housewife's point of view.

The Theatre Royal, Edinburgh, has been called Scotland's greatest home of pantomime. Each summer elaborate preparations for Christmas entertainment begin, and frequently producers of pantomime in other parts of the country have had to look to its productions for new ideas.
It is the oldest theatre in Scotland, having been founded in March, 1768, on the site now occupied by the General Post Office. It was here that the incomparable Mrs. Siddons made her first appearance in 1784 in Venice Preserv'd.
The present Theatre Royal was opened in January, 1876. It had been burned to the ground on three occasions, in 1853, in 1865 (when several lives were lost), and in 1874.

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.
