King's Post


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.
A Programme of Letters on State and Family occasions
Compiled from the writings of Kings and Queens to their Consorts, their Children, their Servants, their Ministers, and their Friends

Letters pathetic, letters amusing, letters ceremonial, letters intimate—surviving through the centuries. They have been found in this collection and the other, most of the research having been done by Ivor Vinogradov, an authority on matters of history, who gave two broadcast talks last year. Few who listen can fail to feel the irony of a letter of devotion from Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn, or the pathos of one of terror from her to him when, two years later, she was a 'doleful prisoner in the Tower'.

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.
