: Village Opinion-I

What docs the village think of contemporary problems and of the modern outlook ? What judgment does it pass on the developments of local self-government, on questions of sanitation and housing and education ? What does it think of the town and of town life and of the impact of urban policies upon the tradition of the countryside ? These are some of the questions discussed in this series in which squire, parson, farmer, labourer, parson's wife, postman, schoolmaster and others take part.

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.
