: QUEEN OF THE BALTIC

A reconstruction by Harold Kurtz based on a visit to Travemuende, one of Western Germany's best-known resorts
Narrator, Hugh Burden
Others taking part:
Dorothy Holmes-Gore , Mairhi Russell
Jack Allen , T. St. John Barry
Rupert Davies , Felix Felton
John Ruddock. Ian Sadler
Ivan Samson , Richard Williams
Musical arrangements by Alan Paul
Singer, Larry Cross
Production by Joe Burroughs
As its name implies Travemuende stands at the mouth of the River Trave in Schleswig-Holstein looking out over the Baltic Sea. An ancient fishing and merchant town, it became a fashionable watering-place during the nineteenth century, and in recent years has acquired a new vogue as the Monte Carlo of Northern Europe. It derives an added piquancy from its situation, facing as it does across the Trave Estuary the most northerly point of the iron curtain between East and West Germany.

: THE GOON SHOW

Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan in ' Lurgi Strikes Britain! '
Poor Arnold Fringe is suddenly stricken with the Dreaded Lurgi in a Lancashire bus. No doctor can find an antidote. Even Dr. Neddie Seagoon , twice struck off the register, is baffled. Every known cure is sought, but without success. Within a few days Lurgi has claimed nine thousand victims. Isolation bays are set up and Lancashire is hastily evacuated. Then, one black night, that none of the Albert Hall audience will ever forget, Lurgi reached London!

: 'D'YE KEN JOHN PEEL?'

The story of a song, the man who wrote it, and the man whose name it immortalises
Script by John Hewitson
Narrator, Andrew Faulds
Incidental music composed by Michael Hurst and plaved by the BBC Northern Orchestra
Conducted by Vilem Tausky with the Radcliffe Male Voice Choir
Production by Stanley Williamson
John Peel died a hundred years ago this month, an obscure Cumberland huntsman. Today, thanks to the song written about him by his friend, John Woodcock Graves, his name is known wherever the English language is spoken or sung, and the man himself has become almost a legend. This programme traces the growth of the legend and tries to rediscover the real figure at the heart of it.

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.
