A personal tribute by Andre Maurois
(from Paris)
Marshal Lyautey whose life Andre Maurois has written, was one of the creators of the French Empire. He served with the French army in Indo-China in 1894 against the Upper Tongking pirates, and later accompanied his chief, General Gallieni, to Madagascar where he put into practice new and successful methods of colonial government. Before the war Marshal Lyautey was appointed High Commissioner and Resident-General in Morocco.
During the war and later he carried on administration in Morocco, conquered the Atlas, and was rewarded by being made a Marshal of France in 1921. A statue of Lyautey is to be unveiled at Casablanca on November 5.

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.
