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.
British History
I-' The New Factories'
RHODA POWER
Last term you heard all about the eighteenth century, up to the year 1776 ; this term these broadcasts continue from that date and cover British history up to the year 1851. These years cover the introduction of two things that were to change the whole history of Britain. The new factories and the coming of the railways.
It is about the former that
Miss Rhoda Power is to tell you today. In the early days of weaving and spinning machines, when the new factories came into being, people found it very difficult to grow used to the new conditions. The workers had been accustomed to spinning and weaving in their own homes. They were full of resentment against the coming of the machines.

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.
