PHILIP HOBSBAUM. B. S. JOHNSON and PETER PORTER under the chairmanship of EDWARD LUCIE-SMITH
This regular Friday meeting of poets (whose work recently featured in A Group Anthology) was initiated at Cambridge in the early 1950s by Philip Hobsbaum and has now taken place in London for about eight years, first in Stockwell and then in Chelsea-from where tonight's programme will be broadcast. The poems to be read, some of which are printed in the current issue of The Listener (dated August 22), will be discussed one at a time by the poets at the meeting. It is expected that about three will be read and discussed while the programme is actually on the air. Introduced by GEORGE MACBETH

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.
