: CHILDREN'S HOUR

' Bede ' : play about the father of English history, by V. A. Peam , with music specially composed .by Martin Shaw
The Northumbrian monk Bede (A.D. 673-735) is one of the most famous figures of the twilit period of British history between the end of the Roman Occupation and the establishment of a single English kingdom. He lived most of his life in the monastery at Jarrow, where he taught Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, and the singing of church music. His historical writings form the main authority for the period of the Anglo-Saxon conquests and the conversion to Christianity of the invaders.

: ' ARMED TRAWLERS IN THE ARCTIC

Recorded talk by Lieut. John D. Drummond, R.N.V.R.
In this war, as in the last, the services rendered by the men of the little ships have proved of incalculable value. Their tasks are not always spectacular, though on their long voyages in northern waters-particularly on the run to Russia-they have had their share of peril and excitement.
Many of these little ships are converted deep-sea trawlers ; others are newly constructed; all are manned by wartime sailors who have been drawn from every walk of life.

: ' THE FOUR FREEDOMS '

No. 6—' What Now ? ' Written and produced by Louis MacNeice
Previous programmes in this series presented certain characters or events in history which were illuminated by particular concepts of freedom. This programme, the last of the series, is in the nature of a stock-taking. It looks at the past to weigh up earlier notions of freedom, and it looks at the present to decide what we mean when we use the same word today.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
