A selection of verses from
' A Dartmoor Village ' by Eden Phillpotts
1 At midnight, when the hour is told
And moonshine marks the dewy way,
A wanderer in the churchyard fold
May at the heads Of sleepers' beds,
Read many things not seen by day.
For, come the dawn and set the moon
And sparkle out the morning rime,
The stones they tell another tune
Above the heads Of sleepers' beds.
More apt for naked, daylight time
Readers, H. Josephine Hamilton , and S. Gorley Putt
Listeners know many of the plays of Eden Phillpotts in their broadcast form, as well as in their stage and book form, but this is the first time that any of his poems have been broadcast in the West of England. ' A Dartmoor Village ' is only one of several volumes of poems he has published : his total output of works of all kinds amounts to more than three hundred and fifty volumes,

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.

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.
