The British Seafarer

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.
A history in 26 parts in the words of those who have made the history
1: Introduction-The Deep Sea
Sea covers 70 per cent of the globe; man himself was cradled in it. Our maritime history is a story which everyone thinks they know - and which on the whole they don't: the great unknown subject. It is an amazing human achievement, and all the more so because so much of it is salt sores, the stench of bilge-water, and weevilly biscuits.

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.
