The Children'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.
Today will be 'Breaking-up Day' - for the Children's Hour at all events. The celebrations will include: Songs with Choruses - led by Joseph Farrington. 'Packing for the River' and 'The Bathe' - from 'Three Men in a Boat' (Jerome K. Jerome). 'A (Holiday) Trip on Britain's Tiniest Engine', a Railway Talk by Cecil J. Allen and certain others.

Somewhere about now comes the day when schools close their doors for the summer holidays. By way of celebrating the occasion a series of suitable songs has been arranged for today's Hour with rousing choruses, and in order that there may be no delay in getting away for the holidays - in imagination, at all events - Mr. C.J. Allen will attend in order to conduct us personally on a railway journey of a very unusual kind. Mr. Allen is an eminent railway engineer who, for over a year, has prepared monthly talks on this, his own pet subject.

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.
