: Here is the Weather Forecast!

The Weather Forecast has long held an honoured place in our daily programme.
Tonight we shall try to show that music is a suitable medium for conveying this somewhat commonplace, but extremely useful information. For this purpose we have chosen the following four typical Weather Forecasts:-
I. Here is the Weather Forecast! The warm spring weather, which has favoured this country for the last forty-eight hours, is likely to persist, and a continuance of bright sunshine may be expected.
II. Here is the Weather Forecast! The stormy weather over the Atlantic is likely to reach these shores, and to-morrow will be stormy. A strong south-westerly gale is likely in the Irish Channel, and sea passages will be rough.
III. Here is the Weather Forecast! Extremely hot, dry weather is probable for the next forty-eight hours, and the attention of farmers is drawn to this. The continuance of summer weather is all in favour of the successful gathering of the heavy crops of hay.
IV. Here is the Weather Forecast! A depression is on its way from Iceland, and rain and cold winds may be expected in all districts within the next twenty-four hours.

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.
