' Green Sailors and Fair Winds' by Gilbert Hackforth-Jonea
2—' Stranger than Fiction '
Production by Josephine Plummer
' Last week I told you how we crossed the Channel in a full gale, in order to get a young man back to England in time to rejoin his regiment before his leave expired. Well, it was a very rough trip and we were all pretty shaken up by the motion. So we weren't at all sorry to lie in harbour alongside the quay in Poole, while the gale blew itself out. There were quite a number of yachts sheltering there. Rag Doll was berthed alongside one called Cape Horn. She was an ancient and rather dirty converted fishing-boat, whose owner was a weather-beaten old man whom we soon got to know.' (Mary Green)

: GERMANY'S PLACE IN EUROPE

A discussion by three representative German speakers in a studio in Bonn, with a speaker in a studio in London
Chairman, Frank Byers
What should be Germany's place in Europe? Should she be allied with the West? If so, will such an alliance postpone, or make impossible, the restoration of German unity? Or should Germany be neutral between East and West? These are questions which immediately concern not only the Germans, but all Europeans; and in this programme they and related issues are considered.

Studies in the problem of the persistent offender by Merfyn Turner
2—' Jo '
' Jo ' is not a criminal. But he is too anxious to be liked, and in the lodging-house world where he mainly lives this makes him a ready victim for criminals in need of a willing assistant. 'Jo' can surely escape that fate-if he receives the right help.

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.
