: ' Hen Blasau Dyffryn Teifi'

(A Welsh talk by S. M. Powell on ' Old
Mansions of the Vale of Teifi
Most of the old country houses in the upper part of the Vale of Teifi are now in ruins. Around them is centred much of the history of rural Wales since the beginning of the enclosure period. Tonight's speaker, who is the history master at the Tregaron County School, tells us that his talk this evening will consist of history-without-tears and that he will touch upon those aspects of the subject that will interest the average listener. As these old houses are within easy reach of the main road, his talk will also serve as an introductory guide to tourists.

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.
