The Selly Oak Colleges, Birmingham, nine in number, are autonomous institutions, each having its own special aim with separate staffs and courses of study. They combine for a number of purposes and so form a single body, in some ways comparable with a university. The Department of Missions was established in 1936 when Dr. Edward Cadbury endowed a Central Chair of Missions.

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.
