'Breuddwyd y telynor,
Yn llanc yng Nghymru gynt,
Oedd mynd i rodio'r gwledydd,
Yn rhydd ar ddedwydd hynt;
Gweled rhyfeddodau,
A mawrion bethau'r byd,
A dysgu ei dyriau,
A'i geinciau gorau i gyd.'

: Cenffig, y Ddinas Goll

'Daeth cawod o dywod dig
Ag anffawd i dref Genffig'
Mae pawb a deithiodd mewn trên neu fodur rhwng Caerdydd ac Abertawe wedi sylwi ar y bryniau tywod sydd rhwng y ffordd fawr a'r môr gerllaw Margam. O dan y bryniau hyn y claddwyd dinas Cenffig, un o brif drefi Morgannwg yn y Canol Oesoedd.
Yr oedd castell a marchnad ac eglwys a llawer o dai o fewn muriau'r dref, ond fe lyncwyd y cyfan gan y tywod. Erbyn heddiw nid oes dim ond darn o dŵr y castell yn y golwg.
Yn y rhaglen hon rhoddir brasolwg ar fywyd Cenffig pan oedd y ddinas yn ei bri, a cheisir dangos hefyd beth a ddywaid Hanes am y modd y claddwyd hi yng nghrombil y tywod.

: I Remember-5

A series of personal recollections from
Wales and the South West
E. J. Plaisted is a product of the South Wales coalfields, having worked underground for twenty-five years, until the lock-out of 1926, when he was obliged to look for work in other directions. His endeavours have unfortunately not been successful, for he has been unemployed for the past five years His interest in politics, both local and national, which he developed from an early age, has, however, been stimulated, for in addition to having contested two Parliamentary Elections, the Isle of Thanet in 1929 and Salisbury in the General Election last November, he has a seat on the Bristol City Council. Tonight he will recall some of the interesting episodes which have occurred during the time he has lived in South Wales and the West of England.

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.
