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.
En attendant Mme Forbes
Ray Gosling presents a tale of ecclesiastical life in the Diocese of Fulham and Gibraltar.
... I went to a service the other day - the altar looked like an Oxo cube and the priests seemed to be dressed in raincoats - it's all terribly sad....
The Rev Kenneth Forrester is chaplain to the dying Anglican community in Pau, in south-west France. His church, St Andrew's, has neither bells, vergers nor jumble sales -just a tiny congregation of ageing expatriates who assemble to hear true-blue 1662 ideas more ancient than modern....

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.
