Today is Mothering Sunday, a day specially honoured by the Mothers' Union as a rallying-point for its continuous efforts in the cause for which it was founded in 1876-' to uphold the sanctity of marriage, to give to mothers the strength that comes of fellowship in prayer, and to help them to train their families in holiness and purity of life.' The Union now has more than half-a-million members, including single women who are enrolled as associates, and a fitting centre for its activities in Mary Sumner House, named after the founder of the Union, in Tufton Street, Westminster, opened in 1925.

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.
