STORY TIME

Tom Brown 's Schooldays by Thomas Hughes adapted as a reading in five parts by ANGELA JESSON
Read by MICHAEL TUDOR BARNES
1: Early Days. Tom finds a plac among the Browns of Berkshire and leaves home for the first time
Tom Brown 's Schooldays has been dramatised before, and filmed, and televised-but each new generation must gain pleasure from comparing their own schooldays with the strict and unyielding but strangely liberal discipline of Dr. Arnold at Rugby School. Tom Brown , unconventionally brought up in his father's squirearchy in Berkshire, is sent to Rugby. There he meets with the friendly, likeable East, the bully Flashman, and the simple, vulnerable Arthur: and as we listen to Tom's progress through the school we watch in parallel the progress of our own maturity.
Produced by Anthony Cornish

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.
