' Autumn at the Tadpole'
A new serial play insix parts by Benedict Ellis
2—' Joe's Gold Mine '
Production by May Jenkin
It ail began because Joe Float , son of Mr. and Mrs. Float of The Tadpole, fed a big bullfrog with cod liver oil to cure his croak. And it did more than cure his croak-it made him grow nearly eight feet tall in a single night. At first he frightened the Float family nearly out of their wits, but he turned out such a kindly fellow that he became their ferryman and a special fnend of Fenella, a guest at The Tadpole. Today you hear how Joe had another bright idea, even more upsetting than the last.

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.
