: 'OUT OF THE USUAL'

A symposium of short talks
In these days of unrest and change it is refreshing to come across people who, hidden in quiet corners of the Welsh countryside, still cling to their quaint crafts and old-fashioned ways of living. This afternoon you will hear how a water-diviner, a travelling saddler, a bird-watcher on an island sanctuary, and a broom-maker carry on with their unusual occupations.

: A.R.P. FOR PAPER'

A talk by Dr. Julius Grant
The technique of modern life depends largely on the keeping of accurate records, and this depends largely on preserving in legible condition certain pieces 'of paper. How can paper be protected from damage by war or decay ? Dr. Julius Grant , an expert on the scientific aspects of paper manufacture, has some fascinating tales to tell of this battle for the life of paper. Many listeners may remember his talk on tracing hook-forgers.

: ' INFORMATION FROM THE ENEMY

A radio play by Donald Bull
Produced by Laurence Gilliam
The scene is a small provincial town in Western Germany at the present time
The drama of this play, which is said to be based on fact, lies in the fact that the parents of a U-boat commander, doubtful of the official news that he is dead, hear from a London news broadcast in German, to which the are forbidden to listen under pain of death, that their son is alive.
What are they to do when the whole town is to join in a memorial service for the son they know to be alive ? That is only the beginning of this telling play which keeps its suspense to the final curtain.

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.
