All year round, 24 hours a day, British Rail is part of the nation's life blood. It is used, abused, tolerated, criticised, appreciated and even sometimes praised by all of us at some time or other.

With a turnover exceeding £2,000 million a year, and more than 130,000 staff, it is one of the country's major industries. Railwatch is live from York, historic railway city and headquarters of BR's Eastern Region, the midpoint of the prestigious East Coast main line that links London with the north of England and Edinburgh. Every day this week, the programme goes behind the scenes to find out by whom and how the network is run.

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.
