' Baron Bear and the Little Prince
A serial play for younger listeners by R. C. Scriven
Produced by May E. Jenkin
3—' The Golliwog Spy '
It is perhaps dull of Baron Bear not to recognise the identity of the Ambassador of the Spice Islands, but ambassadors, like Caesar's wife, should be above reproach. The Ambassador, however, is a dangerous man, since he is in a position to commit an act of sabotage unparalleled in the history of the Fortress of Toyz.
Children listening this afternoon may well believe that their worst fears will be realised.

: The Rise and Decline of Johnny Godwin

A play for broadcasting by Leslie Halward
[Starring] Wilfred Pickles
Produced by Edward Livesey in the Midland studios
This play is the story of an honest young plasterer who becomes involved in the jerry-building racket between the wars. It is not intended to be an exposure of a racket, but to describe one man's story of what happened when he had the opportunity to ' do as hundreds of others are doing.' The story begins in the North ot England and most of it takes place in the Midlands, but, as the places as well as the characters in the play are imaginary, listeners with an acute ear for dialect will find that it is impossible to pinpoint the localities closer than that. It is with the universal problem of Johnny Godwin that the play is concerned.

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.
