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.
© ' History in the Making'
'Australia', 1789-1937
E. RONALD WALKER , M.S., Ph.D.
Exactly 150 years ago tomorrow--on January 26, 1788-Captain Arthur Phillip , with eleven ships and a thousand men and women, sailed into Port Jackson and established the first white settlement on the site of Sydney. He became the first Governor of New South Wales. Today, in the first talk this term in this series, Dr. Walker, Professor of Economics at Sydney University, is going to tell you just what this event meant in the history of Australia, and why the celebrations there are to cover a period of three months.
All of you who listen to this talk should make a point of hearing the broadcast from Sydney tomorrow night by Lord Wakehurst, the present Governor of New South Wales.

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.
