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.
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.
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.
