Times Remembered by Proud Mums

Synopsis

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.
3: Patrick Moore 's Mother, Gertrude
They say that behind every successful man there's a woman. The woman behind the success of astronomer Patrick Moore-whose The Sky at Night series is the longest running one-man show on television - is his mother, 86-year-old Gertrude.
When he was six she gave him a book called The Story of the Solar System. He's been looking up at the sky ever since - and making a good living out of it.
Tonight she talks to JOHN PITMAN about how it all began.
Director PATRICIA WOOD

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.
