WIRELESS FOR THE BLIND

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.
Appeal on behalf of the British Wireless for the Blind Fund
(Registered in accordance with the National Assistance Act
1948) by Viscount Hailsham , Q.c.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Lord Hailsham, [address removed]
Of the four to five thousand sets the Fund will be asked to supply during 1958, principally to the newly blind, the majority will be the more expensive VHF receivers now essential for satisfactory reception in many areas. The Fund will require at least C50,000 to meet this need, and once more relies on the generosity of listeners.

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.
