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.
Two Great Adventures
Introduced by Roger Finn
The seafaring perils of Cape Horn and the great
Pilgrimage of the Crusader
Knights come together in this Newsround Special about two modern-day adventurers, Tim Severin and Nigel Seymour.
Tim is following the tracks of the Crusaders across Europe, riding a knight's charger. Mary Downing catches up with him in Hungary.
Nigel attempts to paddle round Cape Horn , at the tip of South America, in a kaymaran - two kayaks strapped together, each with a tiny sail. Will he conquer the mighty waves that have defeated so many others? Picture editor IAN LAVELLS Producer MARY DOWNING Editor JOHN CRAVEN

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.
