: THE GLASS OF FASHION

A feature on Royal Ascot
Written by Keith Bell
Edited and produced by Robert Pocock
With house-parties given on a lavish pre-war scale, Ascot week is one of the main occasions of the London Season. Men go to Ascot for the racing, but for a woman the clothes are more important than the races, and the programme includes recordings of dress designers, society editors, debutantes, and others who are all concerned in the leading fashion parade of the social year.

Another Approach to the Lost Centuries
Talk by H. P. R. Finberg Head of the Department of English Local History.
University College, 'Leicester
In a recent series of broadcasts about the transition from Roman Britain to Saxon England it was evident that there are different views on the extent to which Roman civilisation succeeded in surviving the Saxon invasions. Mr. Finberg shows how at any rate one Roman-British estate passed bodily into Saxon hands without any essential changes in its social structure or methods of farming

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.
