A broadcast from the Show Ground at Taunton
This year's Bath and West Agricultural Show is being held at Taunton, May 29-June i. Listeners will hear something of a good many old friends in the Secretary's tent and at the Stock Judging Ring, and will be given an account of the chief things that are happening.
The Bath and West and Southern
Counties Society, for the encouragement of agriculture, arts, manufactures, and commerce, was first started in 1777 as the Bath Society. The founder, Edmond Rack , was a draper's assistant in Norwich who followed in the foot-steps of all good apprentices and married his employer's daughter. Although he had no scholarly attainments, he wrote poetry, and'after his marriage went to live in Bath, as it was a centre of literary activity.
At that time Norfolk agriculture was much in advance of the rest of the country and Edmond Rack marvelled at the backwardness of the Somersetshire farmers. He therefore founded the Bath Society and his efforts were supported by the County families. In the early days of the nineteenth century the Society began to face difficult days, but in 1850 a fresh development was started which undoubtedly gave it a new future. This was the scheme for a migratory show, and the first show held out of Bath was held in Taunton. This year it is being held in Taunton for the fourth time.

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.
