We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A series of eight programmes 1: In Search of a Champion
Last autumn 12 top shepherds and sheepdogs from all parts of the British Isles met at Buttermere in the Lake District for a series of television sheepdog trials. During the next seven weeks they will be seen competing in teams representing England East, England West, Scotland and Wales.
Phil Drabble (pictured) looks behind the trial course at the sheepdogs on the farm, the unique role they play, and their life-from puppies, through patient training, to working sheep on the lowlands and fells of the British countryside.
Next week all the skill and wisdom of man and dog will be put to the test as the first team, England West, competes on the trial course.
...a lucid, tranquil introduction to the trials to be shown in subsequent editions .. : (DAILY TELEGRAPH) ... simple, rewarding viewing the very best of television ...

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.
