Henri Dunant was a Swiss business man who was so horrified by the sufferings of wounded soldiers during wartime eighty years ago that he started a movement to help them. This movement grew into the Red Cross Society, with branches in almost every country in the world. Today's interlude is about Henri Dunant and it illustrates the ancient saying to which Christ gave a new meaning: * Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself ' (St. Matthew 19, v. 19).

"The Moss Woman and the Golden Spade"
A fairy play by Kathleen Fidler
Mairi, an orphan, lives with her sister Sorcha and Sorcha's husband Beathan in a little cottage at the edge of the wood. Beathan is a farmer, but he is a great lazy man and does not do much to make his farm prosper. Sorcha keeps scolding and grumbling at him and uses the rough edge of her tongue on little Mairi too. She makes the little lass no more than a drudge in the house. The Moss Woman changes the fortune of this little household entirely and by the end of the story they have discovered that in order to be happy you must work and that money is not everything.

: THE BATTLE THAT BEAT JAPAN

Leytc Gulf, Philippine Islands
October 20-25, 1944
Written by David Woodward and Chester Wilmot
Produced by Laurence Gilliam
The story of this great sea battle in the Pacific between the Americans and Japanese is almost unknown in this country. It is clear now that it will go down in history as one of the decisive sea battles of all time, ranking with Lepanto, Trafalgar, and Jutland. This radio documentary account is based on the actual signals, personal accounts, and interrogations of the rival Admirals.

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.
