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.
'It's all about you, the Great British Public,' says Derek Jameson , along with reporters Jeni Barnett , Lucy Pilkington and Chris Serle.
In the final programme of the current series, they're out searching for ordinary people doing extraordinary things. This week:
Chris meets two ghouls who haunt the ancient alleyways of Edinburgh. Robin Mitchell (alias Adam Lyall , deceased) and Colin McPhail (alias the Mad Monk) invite Chris to join them on a diabolical ghost tour.
Guest reporter John Pitman tracks down Jim Marsh - the man who agreed to change his name to
Jim Reeves to satisfy his wife's obsession with the dead singer. Whatever happened to him?
And Derek will be out and about asking the people he meets, 'Hope and Glory! What's your story?' Producer SARAH CAPLIN
Series producer PETER BAZALGEITE

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.
