Out of School


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.
Today's programmes were planned for an audience in Secondary Schools, and they are just two of the twenty-seven transmissions directed to schools and technical colleges each week of term time.

11.15 Going to Work: Working in a Pottery
Introduced by Peter West.
How are plates and saucers made and what is it like to make them? The School Film Unit goes to Burslem to find out.
BBC film for Schools
First shown in March

11.35 Science and Life: How Your Body Works: The Skeleton
The skeleton is a live 'scaffolding' around which the body is built, but human bone is much stronger than the hardest wood. In this programme Professor W.S. Bullough examines the skeleton and shows how this strength is also combined with great flexibility.
First shown in February

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.
