People who had never even spoken to him always referred to him as Ivor: and this was In itself perhaps the profoundest expression of the remarkable affection which existed between this man of the theatre and his countless admirers.

: The Publishing Business

When did you last buy a new hardback? Some publishers are going out of business: others are being taken over by large (and often international) firms whose primary interest may not be in books. And yet, at the same time, there are plenty of publishers who seem to be thriving - and new, small, independent publishing firms continue to be set up.
GEORGE SCOTT examines the publishing business, listens to the views of publishers large and small, and considers the related worlds of bookselling, printing, and public libraries. Produced by DANIEL SNOWMAN

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.
