William Elphinstone , who became Bishop of Aberdeen in 1484, was the first to conceive the idea of building a college in Aberdeen to be devoted entirely to education. He discussed this important subject with King James IV who took up the proposal with great good will and applied to His Holiness Pope Alexander VI for the necessary permission. A Bill was granted in 1494 and building began about 1500. The college was dedicated to the Blessed Virgin and at first called the College of St. Mary of the Nativity, later to be called King's College, no doubt on account of its association with King James IV.
The only part of the original work which has survived is the Chapel on the north side of the Quadrangle, from which this afternoon's Gaelic service is being relayed and in which Bishop Elphinstone is buried. The Chapel is notable for its exquisite carving which, according to one authority, has no equal anywhere in Scotland and few rivals in England.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
