relayed from H.M. Dockyard, Portsmouth
The Battle of Trafalgar, the most historic victory ever won by the British Fleet, was fought on October 21, 1805. It was a crushing blow to French sea-power, but the price paid for it was the loss of Nelson, who was struck down by a French bullet in the moment of victory. His triumph and death are being commemorated to-day by a special programme incorporating scenes from his life-story, and all of these, with the exception of those dealing with his childhood, are being relayed from the deck of his famous flagship, the Victory, which is being refitted in the original style.

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.
