The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Alerton, was founded about a.d. 1115 by Gilbert the Norman, High Sheriff of Surrey, and retains conspicuous features of the ancient building. A church of earlier date is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Once a country church, it now serves a wide and populous area. It was used by Lord Nelson when he made his home at Merton Place. The bench from his pew and his hatchment are still to be seen. He went to Trafalgar from Merton, and a son of the vicar was on the Victory with him at the time of his death.

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.
