In Leicestershire the new school year sees the start of a new experiment in secondary education. Stewart C. Mason , the Director of Education for Leicestershire, thinks that the 11-plus examination and the resultant segregation of children into grammar and secondary modern schools is an offence against reason and public conscience. The plan he has devised, and which is now being put into effect in two selected areas of the county, will mean the abolition of 11-plus segregation; and at the age of fourteen there will be transfer to the Grammar School without examination for all children whose parents choose it for them and promise to keep them there beyond sixteen.

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.
