The ' Busby Babes ': 25 years ago this week, Britain lost one of its greatest football teams when an aeroplane crashed at Munich. DUNCAN EDWARDS, ROGER BYRNE and TOMMY TAYLOR were among the eight members of Manchester United's championship winning team who lost their lives, along with three club officials and eight journalists. BARRY DAVIES remembers a team that was called the 'Busby Babes', and seeks out those who survived that terrible ordeal.

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.
