It is now October 26, 1872. Phileas Fogg has used up twenty-four of the eighty days in which he has wagered he will go round the world. Using various means of transport, he, his servant Passepartout, and the Indian girl they rescued have reached Calcutta.
Here they are immediately taken before a magistrate because back in Bombay Passepartout had caused a row by going into a temple with his shoes on. Detective Fix thinks Fogg is a bank robber and hopes to delay him until the arrest warrant arrives from London. But bail is allowed. Fogg, Passepartout, and the girl skip on board the Mongolia, which sails at once for Hong Kong

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.
