: CHILDREN'S HOUR

' Woggis': a serial story by Geoffrey Lapage , told by David Davis. 1—' Woggis is Bought'followed by ' Spread Eagle '
A new serial play in six parts by Aubrey Feist being a sequel to ' High Barbary '
Part 1
Production by Derek McCulloch
All those who heard Aubrey Feist's serial thriller High Barbary will be glad to meet again the two young adventurers Jeremy Shafto and Andre de Marsac and, perhaps of no less importance, the amusing Calamanco whose villainy is equalled only by the sheer presumption of his various disguises. The background to this story of the league of the Spread Eagle, a secret society pledged to restore the Bonapartists to the throne of France, is the revolution of 1848.

: SOME INVENTIONS OF 1949

A discussion by a panel of experts under the guidance of David Lloyd James
Those taking part include A. L. Bacharach , Ian Boyd , George Edwards , and Percy Dunsheath
It is not usually possible to pin down an invention to an exact date-an invention is usually the culmination of many years' work. So inventions of 1949 wilt mean those that have attracted attention within the past twelve months. The experts may deal with anything from robot demon bowlers to plastic helmets for firemen.

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.
