The British Seafarer

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.
A history in 26 parts In the words of those who have made the history. 3: The High Seas
The Elizabethan age was the first great explosion of British seafaring activity. Its achievements have rightly become legendary, but their reality was far removed from the legends of Westward Ho! and Errol Flynn. In this programme Elizabethan sailors themselves tell us what was achieved and what it cost.

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.
