A series of three programmes 1:On Hampstead Heath
From dawn to dusk, super tramp JOHN HILLABY takes us with him for a long stroll on Hampstead Heath, his stamping ground for the past 26 years.
Amusing anecdotes from the days when ' Highwaymen hung crackling on the gallows '; penetrating observations of the profusion and variety of life on the Heath - from its insects, to its concert, pub and fairground lovers - provide a delightful picture of an area heard of by every Britisher, close to the heart of every Londoner, but intimately known to very few.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
