After the Indian Mutiny the Raj was born, and in 1877 Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress. Canals brought life to deserts; railways helped to unify the country. The memsahib arrived, and so did Civil Servants, often to become judge, doctor, and administrator all in one. Bureaucracy flourished, and at the very top reigned the Viceroy. Narrated by Robert Hardy

: The Spinners in Spring

For the first of four Spinners' Specials, Tony, Cliff, Hughie and Mick went to Cornwall to sing of Spring and meet the fertility symbol of Padstow - the.grotesque 'Obby 'Oss.
On May Day for hour after hour the 'Obby 'Oss dances wildly to the Padstow May song, and the entire town throbs to the basic urges and music of Spring. The Spinners join the celebrations and also sing their own style of songs.

Leningrad Reborn
Imagine that the Germans had invaded England in the 1940s and occupied Hatfield House, Windsor Castle and Hampton Court, and then burnt them to the ground in revenge because they could not capture London.
That's the sort of situation that faced the Leningraders after the 900-Day Siege. They decided to restore everything that had been destroyed. They have been working for 25 years and it might take as long again to finish the task. English commentary spoken by Alan Dobie

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.
