After the Thanksgiving Service in St. Paul's Cathedral on November 12, 1918, the Asquiths lunched at Buckingham Palace with Their Majesties.

: THE ANIMALS' WORLD

5-Mammals
The behaviour of mammals living in the wild in this country is less easy to observe than that of birds, because many of them are rather shy and are more active at night than by day. But with the help of observations made on hand-reared animals, recent studies have shown how much mammals can learn compared with lower groups of animals and yet how much of their behaviour seems to follow an instinctive pattern. Mammals whose behaviour is described in this programme include badgers and otters, house mice and bats.

: THE MAIN SHOW

by M. L. Scarborough
' The Pit,' wrote D. H. Lawrence, ' is the main show.' Michael Scarborough, who went to live in Lawrence's country-the Erewash Valley and the Derbyshire Dales -re-experienced the same fascinated horror of industrialism and the same sense of relief and wonder on the Peaks. But his sensibility is that of a stranger, a visitor, and is entirely his own.

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.
