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.
W men have achieved such a record in the field of medical mission work as ' Grenfell of Labrador.' A Rugby Blue at Oxford and a brilliant doctor, he has spent his life in the frozen seas and desolate lands of the far North. He began by taking out to Iceland the first hospital ship for the North Sea fisheries, and in 1892 ho began his long term in Labrador, where he finally established four hospitals, a series of co-operative stores, an orphanage and a school. In 1912 he opened a Seaman's Institute in St. John's, Newfoundland, with money that he himself had raised. Ho has been honoured by the learned societies of two continents, and written several exceptionally interesting books.

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.
