This Wooden O


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 Derek Jacobi
The Shakespeare Globe project is an attempt to reconstruct a replica of the Globe Theatre on the Thames Bankside - as close as possible to the original.
This film follows the early stages - the raising of 16 million dollars, the battle for the site, the arguments over 16th century design.
The founder of the project is American actor/director Sam Wanamaker who has dreamed of rebuilding Shakespeare's Globe for 30 years. He organised an eight-city American fund-raising tour and has brought together many of the richest and most influential people in the world to help him rebuild Shakespeare's theatre. With Michael York, Nicol Williamson, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Millicent Martin, Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth, Lisa Harrow and Sam Wanamaker.

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.
