Saving Graces


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.
By H.M. Postmaster General, the Rt. Hon. SIR H. KINGSLEY WOOD , M.P.
THIS is the first talk by the new Postmaster-General, Sir H. Kingsley Wood, who is the senior partner in a City firm of solicitors, and was elected as Unionist member for West Woolwich in 1918. He was Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health in the Conservative Government of 1924-29, and introduced the Early Closing Bill in 1920 and the Summer Time and Allotments Bills in 1924. He gave valuable help to Mr. Chamberlain when the Local Government Act was passing through the House of Commons; while in Opposition he was a prominent critic of the Labour Government's housing policy. He is chairman of the Executive Committee of the National Conservative and Unionist Association, and for a number of years served on the London County Council. He is speaking this evening about the Post Office Savings Bank, a subject of present interest.

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.
