The Whip.
The Guard.
A Slow Gentleman.
His Wife.
His Daughter.
The Young Gentleman on the "Box".
A Fussy Gentleman.
A Flustered Lady.
A Tollgate Keeper.
A Colonel of Dragoons.

Scene I.
The day opens in the yard of the "Golden Eagle", Eastcheap. Two coaches are being made ready for the road.
In due course the Birmingham coach sets off to the merry tune of the guard's key-bugle.
"Our Ghost", who has decided to accompany the coach, now settles down to listen to the Guard's stories of the road.

Scene II.
At St. Albans one of the horses casts a shoe, and to minimize delay the "breakfast stop" is made in that city, instead of Redbourn, some five miles beyond.
At Towcester a stop is made for lunch. Some of the passengers from London leave the coach here, while fresh ones join it for Birmingham.

Scene III.
During the afternoon a good run is made, in spite of a thunder-storm, and the coach reaches Birmingham by 7 p.m.
At the hotel, a good dinner awaits the travellers, after which begins an impromptu concert.
Thus the day ends.

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.
