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.
DESPITE the inroads of civilization, Africa and its peoples still retain many age-old customs and ways of life. Mr. Baxter, the Secretary of the Missionary Film Committee, who was responsible for that very interesting film, ' India Today,' has recently returned from a journey, with a well-known camera-man, from the Cape to Kenya, ' shooting ' the real life of the real African. The best of the filma that he secured, often under trying and even dangerous conditions, will be shown in London at the end of the month.
7.0 (Daventry only) Prof. W. M.
THORNTON, ' The Swan Memorial Lecture.' S.B. from Newcastle rIS lecture is in memory of Sir Joseph Swan , the great
English physicist and electrician, who died in 1914.

He gave the first public exhibition of electric lighting on a large scale at Newcastle in 1880. Professor Thornton holds the chair of Electrical Engineering at Armstrong College, and is a Vice-President of the Institution of Electrical Engineers.

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.
