: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Many of our under-fives seem to have enjoyed the story by Dorothy Edwards about the little sister who went fishing with the older children and fell into the stream when no one was looking, and some of them, like Oliver Twist , have asked for more. This week, therefore, on Wednesday, they may hear about another of her escapades, this time at a Christmas party! This is the fourth and last week during which our broadcasts have their inspiration in ideas and activities of the Christmas season. ' The Wooden Horse * by Violet Statham to be heard today, and ' The Lonely Snowman ' by Ursula Mourihane to be heard on Thursday are stories of happiness achieved through kindly actions. romorrow we go to the circus in a story by Magiret Wa'lace called ' Tumpy the Circus Elephant,' and on Friday we have another tale. 'Toast for Tea ' by Joan Cass , about a party, a cosy homely little affair, which prepares us for next week's return to stories of everyday life. Elizabeth .4. Taylor

: THE HALF-CENTURY

Six weekly programmes spanning fifty years of eventful history
1-1901-1914
Written by Compton Mackenzie
Music specially arranged and conducted by Francis Collinson
Production by W. Farquharson Small
Compton Mackenzie is one of those people who seem to have been everywhere, seen everything, and talked to everyone. This programme is his personal recollection of the first thirteen years of the century and is as rich as one would expect it to be in its variety of background and significant memories. Together with these it embodies a typically shrewd analysis of the changes that took place in our English civilisation with the turn of the century.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
