Woman's Hour


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.
Out of all the riches of English literature, perhaps one novel has penetrated the consciousness of women more than others: it has a compelling heroine, a powerful hero, a passionate romance and an urgent manifesto. Writers as disparate as Margaret Drabble P.D. James , Penelope Lively
Buchi Emecheta and Fay Weldon pay their own tribute to
Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre , to be serialised from tomorrow.
Story: Day Trip to Scarborough by MARJORIE QUARTON Read by Thora Hird
'I'd enjoy a visit to Scarborough. The Max Jaffa Orchestra, the sea front, the gardens.... Yes, I'd like to see
Scarborough again.'

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.
