One Foot in the Past


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.
This week, Penelope Keith visits Folly Farm in Berkshire, which represents two different phases in the working partnership of architect
Sir Edwin Lutyens and garden designer Gertrude Jekyll. In 1906, the duo created the Elizabethan look, with two cottage courtyard gardens. But by 1912 they were exploring larger-scale formality in the sunken rose garden.
Also, do ordinary people's views count for anything when it comes to listing a building? Nuneaton might not be the heritage capital of the country but, as Kirsty Wark reports, local people were determined to save the biggest structure on their horizon when it came under threat.
Plus a visit to the Walpole Bay Hotel in Cliftonville, Kent, a building which embodies the heyday of the British seaside holiday.

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.
