The World Turned Upside Down The story of St Francis of Assisi by PETER LING with Sean Barrett as Francesco Bernadone
' In my dream, I thought I saw our Lateran Church, here in Rome, shaken by a violent earthquake. The whole building was rocked from its foundations.... tilting dangerously - about to fall. And then I saw a ragged little man ... And he set his shoulder to the wall - and he lifted the whole church back to its original position ... '

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.
