: LIFE IN SAN FERNANDO

by Isabel Winthrope
' Night fell quickly and it brought out those dancing sparks, the fireflies. In summer, hammocks were slung on the verandah, and I slept out of doors. The garden was full of rustling, alarming noises. But overhead the black velvet subtropical sky was ablaze with stars ...' Isabel Winthrope talks about her childhood in Argentina.

: LOOK BEYOND THE CURTAINED WINDOW

The story of the newly blind
Written and narrated by Stephen Grenfell
The majority of the blind men and women in Britain lost their sight in adult life. George Markham is one of these—one of the newly blind who now faces the rest of his life without the use of that major and incomparable sense upon which he relied as a child and as a man. This is his story and perhaps in part-for no man is an island-the story of all the newly blind.

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.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
