: NEW SHAPES AND OLD

Reflections on changing industrial landmarks: by J. L. Hodson
There have been many additions to, and some changes in, the familiar patterns of industry since Mr. Hodson was a boy ... the revolutionary p.'t-head at the new oolljeries; the cable-carrying pylons of the British Electricity Authority; rhe great hydro-electric bastions in the Highlands; the glinting pipes and spheres of the oil refineries at Stanlow and on the Isle of Grain. Mr. Hodson considers these changes against the background of some of the social and political changes of our time.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the ' Wireless for the Bedridden' Society (registered in accordance with the National Assistance Act, 1948) by Gilbert Harding
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
More than 2,400 bedridden and house-bound people of all ages, too poor to provide wireless amenities for themselves, have received the free loan of a wireless set (or relay service) from the Wireless for the Bedridden ' Society. The possession of a wireless set means the relief from loneliness that so often accompanies old age-the awakening of new interests through talks, music, and religious services for those who by ill-health are cut off from the world beyond their four walls. No barriers of age, nationality, or location are imposed. The Society relies entirely upon voluntary contributions to maintain and extend its work throughout the country.

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.
