: VALLEY OF STONES

by Emma Clemens
' Nothing grew there, there was no sign of life, no stirring of a wild creature. It was a valley of dead things, and I knew that, but for some strange happening, I should surely die there.'
Emma Clemens recalls her fear on being lost in an Australian wilderness, and how she conquered it.

: IN OUR TIME

A new series of programmes which, in a blend of recollection and documentary evidence, tell the story of some of the great events of the past forty years
Armistice Day, 1918
Programme edited and produced by David Woodward
November II, until its memories were swallowed up in 1939, was a date in the minds of everyone in this country. The two minutes' silence at eleven o'clock on the morning of that day, the anniversary of the end of the First World War, was a ritual, whose unique character reflected the emotions of thankfulness, pride, and hope with which the end of that war was received.
Tonight's programme recalls that day: it describes the feelings and experiences of fighting men and civilians-British, Allied, and Enemy-on this great occasion, and outlines the state of the world at that time.

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.
