'THE RADIO PADRE'

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.
One of the many respects in which this war differs from the last is the presence in the Army of thousands of young 'serving men, who, manning anti-aircraft guns, and doing other lonely jobs, are cut off for weeks at a time from the general community. Several months ago soldiers from an A.A. Gun Battery asked the BBC whether a padre could broadcast a short service to them. A similar request was later made by a group of Army chaplains. The War Office has seconded the Rev. R. Selby Wright to visit serving men and women in the different Commands, and to give weekly broadcasts in the Forces programme.

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.
