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.
Carol Aid, linking Trafalgar Square with East Africa.
This year people in Britain have responded with great generosity to the victims of famine and poverty in Africa. For tonight's programme, supporters of Christian Aid and the Catholic Fund for Overseas Development
(CAFOD) have gathered in Trafalgar Square to celebrate that giving, and to sing carols with, and raise funds for, their partners in East Africa. In Trafalgar Square Roger Royle meets some of the agencies' well known supporters and, from Kenya, news of how the money is being spent and a visit to a village to share in the Christmas songs of Africa. Angels from the realms of glory: Gloria, gloria: A star in the sky: Silent night: 0 little town of Bethlehem; As with gladness men of old.

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.
