: Word Snakes

A radio parlour game compiled by Morley Adams and Neil Munro
The first player is given a clue to the head of the snake - a one-syllable word, for example 'her', and each following player has a clue to the next scale which is the second syllable of a two-syllable word, for example 'her-on'. The first player to break continuity loses a point for his side and the next player continues with the correct solution as the start of the next snake.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of the Lord Mayor's Greek Relief Fund by the Rt. Hon. fhe Lord Mayor of London
The Lord Mayor's Fund has been opened to relieve acute distress in Greece arising from the war. For over a year able-bodied men have been steadily called up to meet the constant threats of invasion. Industry, of which agriculture is the chief, has been brought to a standstill. Women, children, and the aged are suffering greatly. Winter is approaching, and winter in the north of Greece is particularly rigorous. Already bitter winds and rain have started, and soon there will be snow to add to the hardships of the population and the misery of those whose homes have been destroyed by the attack.
A som of £15,000 has already been cabled to Athens to be devoted to immediate relief. The Athens Fund will be administered on the spot hy the British Minister's Anglo-Hellenic Committee.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.

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.
