Playhouse presents: The Lost Boys


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.
ANDREW BIRKIN'S award-winning trilogy starring with 3: An Awfully Big Adventure
1913: three years have passed since Sylvia's death. George is now a man and Michael 13 years old. For the Llewelyn Davieses , childhood is at an end and illusions are about to be destroyed.
I am sure such excellence would be beyond any other television service in the world. The entire House of Commons should be required to watch it before voting on a motion to compel the Government to grant the BBC funds to maintain its standards ...

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.
