Attard in Retirement by JOHN PEACOCK with George Cole , Rosalie Crutchley , Patricia Hayes Margot Boyd , Mark Dignam Walter Attard was an accountant — very sound but in no way startling. He lived a quiet life and when he retires he regrets the fact that he never took any risks either in business or in his private life and that he ended up with nothing. He's definitely an unlikely hero for a thriller, but at the age of 60, life starts to be exciting for Walter. with ERIC ALLAN , PETER BALDWIN , PETRA DAVIES , ALAN DUDLEY , MICHAEL GOLDIE , JOSIE KIDD and EVA STUART Directed by JANE MORGAN : long wave only (This play was a winner of the Giles Cooper Award for 1979 and is available in print in The Best Radio Plays of 1979, £6.95, from bookshops)

: My Beloved Birds of America

Written by PEGGY BRANFORD with Peter Marinker as John James Audubon and ALISON COLERIDGE MICHAEL DEACON GODFREY KENTON
Noel Johnson as Narrator In April 1826 John James Audubon came to England to find an engraver and printer for his life's work - a monumental collection of watercolour drawings of the birds of America. This is the story, largely in Audubon's own words, of one of the greatest adventures in the history of publishing and, at the same time, a self-portrait of a remarkable man who has been described as ' among the American immortals
The Birds of America consists of 435 prints, each of them the size of a double-page spread of The Times. The cost to the original subscribers was 174 guineas. In 1977 a complete set was sold for £207,000 - at that time a world record price for a printed book sold at auction. Producer

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.
