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.
An Island Soldier by JAMES MATEER With
Benjamin Whitrow as Faustus Denys Hawthorne as the Abbot Sean Barrett as Bran and Michael Harbour as Agobard
' There are rats in our house, my Lord Bishop, and when one has rats one does not waste time chasing them around the garden. One finds out where they breed. They breed in Ireland. So Ireland is where I will go.'
In a Celtic monastery on the north-east coast of Ireland in the sixth century, an Irish Abbot and a stranger from the Roman church in Gaul fight for control of the life of a young man.
Directed hy liane AUKIN

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.
