One Foot in the Past Nelson: the Hero and the Harlot. Lord
Nelson is seen as the classic British hero, yet, as this film recalls, he also shocked polite society when, at the height of his fame, he began an adulterous affair with Lady Emma Hamilton. Presented by Dan Cruickshank. See Choice.

8.05 History Zone Films Myths of Nelson 's Navy The popular image of Lord Nelson's navy is of half-starved, press-ganged sailors disciplined and motivated by "rum, sodomy and the lash". This film hears from historians who paint a very different picture of life at sea, one in which gentlemen could make formidable fortunes. See Choice.

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.
