Listeners are to hear a service from a chapel which was made famous by the ministry of Hugh Stowell Brown, from 1848 to 1886. Myrtle Street Baptist Church is hardly ' out in the country' now, but when it was built in 1844, and the congregation was removed from the old church in Lime Street, the new district was a suburb adjoining green fields. The chapel had to be enlarged three times to accommodate the crowd who came to hear the famous preacher.

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.
