: Welsh Coal

A series of talks on a vital problem
1 - The view of the foreign buyer
Not so many years ago, the Rhondda Valley was one of the richest areas of its size in the world. In all the South Wales and Monmouthshire valleys and ports the signs of prosperity were clear to see. The picture is a very different one today. This new series of talks will throw some light on this unhappy metamorphosis, and in turn a representative of each component part of the industry will present a point of view.
It will of necessity be an individual point of view, but it may help to shed some light on the whole problem. The choice of the Foreign Buyer to open the series is a natural one, in view of the fact that the Welsh coal trade is mainly an export one, and therefore it is a foreign buyer who is the biggest customer.

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.
