We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The British Première of a Czech film based on the famous HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN story.
Out of the simple fairy-tale of the little mermaid who fell in love with an earthly prince, and sold her lovely voice in order to become a human, the Prague Studios made a sumptuous colour production full of music and dancing, exquisite scenery, artists, and fast-moving direction by a prize-winning master of his craft.

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.
