Jimmy by DESMOND HOGAN with P. G. Stephens and Pauline Delany
'I was 26 then. He was 17. I was schoolmaster. He was pupil. He wore white starched collars. I wore grey ... I was his English teacher in a school run by Brothers. It was general knowledge in Galway that I had a bent to literature and as such I was respected and feared, the Irish loving language, hating truth. We were friends, Tommy and I, nothing more ... But the men and women of Galway had a clear glint in their eye for scandal.... '
Musical director JOHN ANDERSON Directed by ROBERT COOPER BBC Northern Ireland

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.
