' February'
H. E. Piggott
1 Next is February
So early in the spring
The farmer ploughs the fallows, The rooks their nests begin, The little lambs appearing Npw frisk in pretty play, I think upon the increase
And thank my God today.'
The second of twelve monthly talks on West Country folk songs, arranged seasonally according to their subject-matter. The illustrations will be sung by Doreen Greenwood and Frederick Harvey

: Theatres of Variety

A Variety Programme broadcast from the stage of THE PALACE THEATRE, BATH
The history of the Palace Theatre goes back into the 'eighties, when a building was erected on the Sawclose site and named the Pavilion. It had its chairman, who announced the turns from his table, after the manner of the day. Next, it was partially reconstructed and became the Lyric, presenting such artists as Charles Chaplin , Ada Blanche , Charles Coborn , and Wilkie Bard. In 1903 it was renamed the Palace, and nine years later it was taken over by its present proprietor, W. S. Pearce. A little over, a year ago it was closed down for rebuilding, and was opened again last September. The theatre is now specially wired for broadcasting.

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.
