The British Seafarer

Synopsis

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 history in 26 parts, in the words of those who have made the history.
15: Engineroom and Stokehold
In the great steamer the bridge was a gold-braided Olympus; the engineroom a kind of underworld; and the stokehold Hades itself. Yet engineers could regard their huge machines with almost religious devotion; and the sub-human stoker of legend plied in fact a skilled trade.

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.
