: CHILDREN'S HOUR

For Older Listeners
"Adventure on Cheviot"
A new serial play written by Winifred Finlay
3: "Black Adam's Cave"
Produced by Herbert Smith
Young Richard Norton, his elder brother Paul, and Uncle Bill set off for Newcastle for what was meant to be a quiet walk along the Border to Cheviot, where they were to meet their mother and sister Judith. On the way there they were given a lift by a spiv-like character who called himself Flash Baker. At Windy Gyle, Ricky fell foul of a young Sects boy, Jo Kerr. As Ricky said, "It was something about an old Border feud millions of years ago." After being accused of burglary by their new neighbour, Mr. Russell of Blackchaggs Pele (an old man with a passion for Druid remains), their next shock came when the young Scots boy turned out to be the old man's granddaughter, Joan.

: THE AMERICAN CHURCHES

Talk by the Rev. Canon John Waddington of St. Peter Mancroft, Norwich
During the summer months ministers of all denominations have gone from this country to share in the work of churches in America: there have been a number of preaching tours and exchanges of pulpits. Many of those who returned have given interesting news of the way in which the American churches are facing their problems and have told of a world quite different from our own. Canon Waddington, who has recently returned from a preaching tour that took him to a number of States, gives his impressions of American Church life.

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.
