: Mr. HARRY HILLMAN : ' The Wonderful Ways of the White Ant'

EVERYBODY who knows anything of natural history knows that the ant tribes are in many ways the most amazing of living creatures. Mr. Hillman is an expert on the ways of the white ant (which, incidentally, is not an ant and not always white) and has been lecturing on this, amongst other subjects, for years.

: Mr. Frank Bustard: "See America : The New World for a New Holiday"

Nothing has done more to make travel possible for people of moderate means than the Tourist Class that is now run on some of the biggest boats sailing to Canada and the United States. For £50, all told, one can do a three weeks' trip to America, travel in comfort and in excellent company. Mr. Bustard has himself recently been on a trans-Atlantic trip under the conditions that he describes in this talk.

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
