'After School'


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 talk on the Facilities for Continued Education, by The Rt. Hon. OLIVER STANLEY , M.C., M.P., President of the Board of Education
Every autumn many hundreds 'of thousands of men, women, boys, and girls, whose only common characteristic is that they have left school, join evening classes. Some of them do it because it helps them in their jobs, others for sheer pleasure. Some like learning about history, literature, foreign languages, others seek skill at carpentry, metal-work, or poster-design. Others again seek health with physical exercises. Local Education Authorities, the Workers' Educational Association, extra-mural departments of universities, settlements of all kinds, and many other agencies try to meet almost any reasonable demand throughout the whole field of cultural, recreational, and vocational education.
The Rt. Hon. Oliver Stanley , President of the Board of Education, will tell listeners about some of these activities, and how they may find out more for themselves.

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.
