This week: Ewen Solon introduces The Revenue Men
When a traveller collapses in a Customs Hall he is immediately examined by a doctor who finds he is carrying a large quantity of gold. The great weight combined with the fact that the man has a weak heart has brought on an attack, and the doctor advises complete quiet. Smith, disregarding this, questions the man and he dies-a disaster which sets off a series of unexpected events.

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.
