Inheritance

Synopsis

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 Green Roofs of Windermere The first of seven programmes on family influences and traditions.
One of the most beautiful lakeland areas in Britain, Windermere has been a favourite with hikers and holidaymakers, artists and poets since the 18th century. But it was in 1846, with the coming of the steam train, that its development really began, The Pattinson family, well established locally as builders, saw its potential and, using the distinctive local stone and green slate, began their work. David Bean , in conversation with George Pattinson , talks about the family's unique influence on the growth and development of the district around Windermere.

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.
