: ' Canoeing on the Wye '

A topical talk by JOHN REDMAN
John Redman , who is a native of Cardiff and has written many descriptive articles about the Welsh countryside, will tell in his talk of his experiences on the river Wye, which he describes as a capricious river providing enough thrills for even experienced local watermen. They say that it takes three years to ' learn the river ', but the tidal stretch of the Wye may take a lifetime. One day when two canoeists in a hurry disregarded all warnings of the boatmen at Tintern and decided to 'shoot the rapids ' between Tintem and Chepstow at ebb tide-the one time when the trip should not be attempted-they experienced enough danger in the space of a few hours. In spite of warnings they both lived to tell the tale, and John Redman , who was one of them, will tell about the adventure tonight.

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.
