The Skin Game


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 play by john GALSWORTHY with Threatened with the encirclement of his land by more and more of Hornblower's factories, Hillcrist, the local squire, preserves an aristocratic calm. But his wife reacts differently, and her retaliation almost ends in tragedy.
More than half a century after its first appearance The Skin Game remains an absorbing, gripping drama which, despite the occasional hint of melodrama, still works wonderfully well today ...

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.
