' I am wearing a large hat. I'm looking, looking at the camera. This picture will last forever. But I shall die.'
At the turn of the century Katie waits to have her childhood preserved forever in a photograph. The print is found 80 years later by Sophie who is similarly obsessed by thoughts of her own mortality.

BBC Two England, 22 May 1981 21.30

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.
