Food and Drink


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.
Presented by Chris Kelly, Michael Barry, Jill Goolden
Week by week.... food news, investigations, challenges, tests, tastings and, of course, the craftiest cooking.
Haute Canteen: Food writer, caterer and cook Prue Leith is challenged to run a British Railways buffet from Brighton to Manchester. This week she discovers whether the passengers have a taste for her personal recipes.
Haute Canton: In the second of a series of ethnic recipes, a classic Chinese recipe from Canton - sweet and sour fish.
And Just Plain Eau: Drinking water is a basic amenity, but not everyone likes its basic taste. One option is the simple water purifier, but how effective is it?

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.
