News Weather followed by The Hostel


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.
First of a two-part documentary. Albert Waxman is a rich and successful Yorkshire businessman; Ruth Simmonks is a retired microbiologist; Lutz Zeisler , a former mill worker, now works as a lollipop man; Avraham Shomroni lives on a kibbutz in Israel. But they all shared the experience of a big, old house in Bradford where, as children fleeing Nazi persecution, they came to live just before the outbreak of war. Now, 50 years on, with other former child refugees, they return to the hostel to remember their lives together as children and the cruel course of events that brought them there. Narrated by Andrew Sachs. Producer Allan Dassell (R) (Concluding part tomorrow)

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.
