4.0 Nursing History Ten programmes presented by MARGARET KORVING
4: A Sense of Profession As fully trained nurses made their mark in the voluntary hospitals - and, more slowly, in workhouse infirmaries - there were arguments for national registration. But it took 30 years to achieve. Producer GORDON HUTCHINGS
4.30 Parties and Party Hats Four programmes
3: Lost Among Officialdom Serving the community, and particularly those less fortunate, would almost certainly be the watchword for local councillors everywhere. Yet, as CHRIS HAWKSWORTH discovers, the job of councillor can be demanding. The rewards are scant for the civic politician. Why then do so many fight to get there? Producer SIMON MAJOR
5.0 So You Want to Be a Writer Ten programmes written and presented by DEREK PARKER 5: How Do You Publish? Many new authors have difficulty in finding a market for their work. Can a literary agent help, and how easy is it to find one? Is 'vanity publishing' a viable option? Producer DENNIS SIMMONS (R)
5.30 GroundsweU Britain's environmental groups come in all shapes and sizes and many political hues. Is this a help or hindrance to environmental improvenent? Presented by HUGH SYKES

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
