: ROAST OR DROWN

by Bob Roberts
Many barges working under sail alone used to trade between London river and the Humber. Bob Roberts is the skipper of the last of the barges to rely on sail, but his talk this morning is not of his own barge: he recalls a day when once, for the only time in his life, he found himself master of a ship without a sail.

by J. M. Cocking
Few French writers have achieved u, England the reputation of Marcel Proust. This is due partly to the excellence with which his work has been translated and also to a vein of poetry in his writing which reaches back to childhood and the very roots of imagination. Professor J. M. Cocking of the University of London describes the man and his work.

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.
