A. Spinnb Shanks , Esquire, recalls his efforts to make Aberdeen Air-Conscious
Listeners will remember that though A. Spinnle Shanks , Esquire, is in his dotage according to number of years, he has by no means lost his faculty for raising a laugh. He has taken the credit for fostering the development of so many interests in Aberdeen that no one will be surprised to hear that he was the first to encourage the Silver Citizens to become air-conscious. If the old gentleman can prove that he has helped in any way it is certainly a bright feather in his cap, for the fact is that Aberdeen has great possibilities as an air port.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.
