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.
Ten films in which Alan Whicker talks to Brits who have gone to live in the USA.
Diana McLellan is a Washington Times gossip columnist. 'The Ear', as she's called, came from Norfolk in the 50s. A prime target for gossip is the White House: President Reagan's former advisor on the Middle East is Dr Geoffrey Kemp from Gravesend; and the State Department spokesman, John Hughes , came from Wales. At George Washington University, the Professor of American History is Marcus Cunliffe. Completing this group of Washington aliens is the former Editor of The Times, Harold Evans.

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.
