The Changing World
6 — ' The Strong Monarchy '
' Henry is rich, has established good order in England, and keeps the people in such subjection as has never been the case before.'
This was written about Henry VII by two Spaniards who were in London in 1498. To-day listeners are to hear more of Henry and of his subjects, and how he laid the foundations of a strong monarchy.

Living Things : Their Vital Activities
7—' The Problem of Waste '
R. C. GARRY , M.B., Ch.B., D.Sc., Professor of Physiology, University College, Dundee, in the University of St. Andrews
If the ashes are. not raked out, a fire gradually sinks and dies, although the coal is not all burned. Ashes or waste accumulate also in the human body. This talk deals with the manner in which the human body removes waste. Reference will be made to past talks on the digestive canal, on the skin and on breathing, but the emphasis will be laid on the functions of the kidneys, those organs so important for the well-being of the body as a whole.

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.
