: His Worship the of Poole, Alderman Herbert S. Carter, 'The Sea Lore of Poole Harbour'

Poole Harbour, with its furious double tides, is well known to yachtsmen, and its maze of creeks and islands extends seven miles inland, forming an inland sea surrounded by the barren wilderness of the Great Heath. The ancient seaport of Poole has a long and adventurous history, dating buck to its first Charter, granted in 1248, and thickly studded with deeds of daring not wholly within the law, for piracy and smuggling of the most desperate character seem always to have come naturally to the men of Poole. In the time of Queen Elizabeth, Poole attained the dignity of being a separate county, and Alderman Carter's predecessors in office were at one time Admirals, by virtue of their office.

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.
