Ebenezer Erskine (1680- 1754) was born in Berwickshire, educated at Edinburgh University, and became chaplain and tutor in the family of the Earl of Rothes in residence at Fife. Later, he was called to Portmoak, Kinross-shire, and ordained there by the Kirkcaldy presbytery.
He founded the Scottish secession church , and enjoyed remarkable popularity as a preacher. People came from all over the country to attend his homely, but majestic, sermons and communions. It is said that his elders had to provide for over two thousand communicants.

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.
