The parish church of Waltham Cross was built rather more than a hundred years ago to meet the spiritual needs of a small village that grew up around the ancient Queen Eleanor Goss. Owing to the horticultural industry of the Lea Valley and the nearness of London, this once small village has now giown into a large industrial and dormitory parish. Holy Trinity Church has been enlarged and a daughter church has been added to serve a population of some 10,000 people.

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.
