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.
TO-NIGHT listeners will hear a programme arranged and introduced by a distinguished man of letters. Mr. J. C. Squire is editor of the London Mercury, a literary review that has published the work of almost every living British writer of eminence ; his own criticisms in the Observer carry as much weight as any of the week ; and his books include volumes of poetry that have assured him an acknowledged place amongst contemporary poets.
It will Le iound that Mr. Squire has chosen a programme illustrative of the history of British Songs from mediæval times up to the early days of the last century, beginning with the thirteenth-century Sumer is i-cumen in ' (a reproduction of the original MS. of which will be found on the next page). To-night's programme will trace the development of our songs up to the time of Tom Moore and the first Victorian song writers, showing that tunefulness and gay spirits have always been the characteristics of British music. The sequence of the songs will be interspersed with orchestral music.

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.
