The present Blackfriars was opened in 1921, seven hundred years after the first coming of the Dominicans, or Blackfriars, to Oxford. The University was young-then and some of the great names of the early days were those of schoolmen from the new orders of friars: the Dominican, Kilwardy, and the Franciscans. Roger Bacon, William of Occam, Duns Scotus.
Father Carpenter and Father Wykeham-George discuss the ideas of these men, and what they might say if they were among us today.

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.
