Ten Years of Yesterday's Witness

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.
' The series which explores living memory is ten years old this spring. To mark the occasion we present eight programmes from its earlier years.
1: Two Victorian Girls
This film was made in 1969. When it was first shown the critics wrote: The romantic novelist Berta Ruck, and Frances E. Jones, one of the first shorthand typists, were splendidly contrasted performers.
(THE TIMES)
Two old ladies, both over 90, got lost in their reminiscences last night and I was lost in admiration.
(DAILY SKETCH)
Berta Ruck and Frances Jones both lived to be a hundred. Tonight we salute their memories.
Producer STEPHEN PEET
Book, Yesterday's Witness, a selection of first-hand accounts by eye-witnesses of events from the not-so-distant past, £4.25, from bookshops.

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.
