A Radio Visitor's Book
For some months now Robin Russell has been the host at a fortnightly studio party held in the Glasgow headquarters of the BBC. He has brought to the microphone many interesting strangers to Scotland, but on this occasion he is confining his invitations to the many Scots who at Hogmanay take wing from the southern cities where they earn their livings in order to pay a flying visit to their native land.

: ' SCOTLAND IN 1937 '

A review of the year's happenings
North of the Border
Devised by George Blake
Produced by Gordon Gildard
The year that closes tonight has been full of interest for Scottish listeners. After the Coronation Their Majesties the King and Queen paid a memorable visit to Scotland. Since then the Exhibition buildings have been growing in stature, and everyone knows about Tait's Tower and other features which will not actually be on show until the opening date.
A new Cunarder is being built at
Clydebank ; and Scottish fishermen have been passing through a period of crisis. In drawing up this programme, therefore, George Blake has had much material from which to select. Among the. sadder events to be recalled will be the deaths of two distinguished Scotsmen, Sir James Barrie and Mr. Ramsay MacDonald.

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.
