: RETURN TO U.S.A.

by Geoffrey Moore
Geoffrey Moore left the U.S.A. in 1951, after a stay of nearly four years, and carried with him a keen regret for much that he had found there. He returned in August to hold a year's appointment in the University of Kansas. In this talk, recorded in America, he gives his impressions of the States, and of the Middle West in particular, after three years' absence.

: Portrait of GEORGE BUCK

Bristol Channel Pilot
Written and produced by Eileen Capel
George Buck has recently retired from the Bristol pilotage. Like many Bristol Channel pilots, he was born in the village of Pill on the banks of the Avon, and his family have long been associated with piloting.
Mr. Buck tells the story of the keen competition that once existed between the pilots, when the cutters would race each other out into the Channel looking for ships, and describes life today, piloting the great ships safely up and down the Bristol Channel.

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.
