Production by Josephine Plummer
' Last week I told you how we decided to go to Uncle George's rescue because we thought he hadn't enough money to keep Rag Doll going. Then we discovered that we were on the wrong tack and that Uncle George, far from giving up his sailing activities, had plans for buying a bigger and better boat. This meant that he would first have to sell Rag Doll. Of course we all thought that the moment Uncle George let it be known that Rag Doll was for sale people would come from the ends of the earth to buy the most beautiful boat in the world but Uncle George said things in real life didn't always happen the way they should'

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.
