Looking Upwards Every Day


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.
Using the 1933 Methodist Hymn Book John Gant has compiled a traveller's guide to the Pearly Gates and Beyond.
'When I was a boy it was still not unreasonable to speculate about there being "A friend for little children above the bright, blue sky", the same who wanted me for a sunbeam: they needed a friend up there before penicillin. The latest edition of the MHB I've not seen. It's said to be in harmony with antibiotics, moon shots, black holes and weathermen, so it must have been severely mauled, like the James 1 Bible and the TridentineMass.'

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.
