Henry Reed writes: I am not, of course, the author of this script. The author is my friend, Mr. Herbert Reeve ; but he has not been in much of a shape lately to collect his thoughts, and I have done it for him. After his earlier work on the late novelist Richard Shewin , which he collected together under the title A Very Great Man Indeed, Mr. Reeve had many requests for further information about other people whom he had chanced on during his researches. He does not think that it would be quite fair to any of his kindly informants to gratify this curiosity; but clearly an exception may be made in the case of the gifted composeress Hilda Tablet. '

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.
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.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
