Script by Jonquil Antony
Produced by Antony Kearey
Bob took the Seven Dials flat in spite of Mrs. Dale's disapproval and Jenny's doubts. Richard Fulton was seriously injured in a road accident and taken to the Middlesex Hospital. Sally told Raff she could not promise to marry him till Fulton was out of danger, but Raff refused to wait for an answer and told Sally that everything was over between them. Mrs. Mountford went into the Nursing Home to rest' and the first patients began to arrive.

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.
