ON Whit-Sunday two years ago the Memorial Service of the British Legion was broadcast from the Cenotaph in Whitehall. A similar service will be held there as usual this Whitsun-tide, and at many other centres up and down the country. The most important ceremony this year, however, is that held at Southsea, near Portsmouth, where the Legion's Annual Conference is due to open on Whit-Monday. To pay this solemn tribute to the memory of their fallen comrades upwards of ten thousand ex-Service men will be assembled before the Naval War Memorial, which stands in a commanding position on Southsea Esplanade between the spacious green common and the sea. Incidentally, this Memorial, which rises to a height of a hundred feet, is a replica of the Naval Memorial at Chatham.

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.
