: BACKCLOTH TO PALGRAVE

The centenary year of The Golden Treasury of English Lyric Poetry
NAOMI LEWIS takes you behind the scenes of more than a hundred years ago, back to when Francis Palgrave (and who was he, really?) was compiling the famous anthology of English poetry which was to have a profound and unforeseen effect on English taste for generations, or almost to this day. Why did Palgrave include no works by living authors? Who were his influential helpers, referred to but not named in the preface?
The speaker's answers to these questions arc largely drawn from little-known material in the British Museum, and may afford interesting surprises.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Royal Hospital and Home for Incurables, Putney by Michael Flanders
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Michael Flanders, [address removed]
The National Health Service looks after the chronic sick. Local Authorities provide homes for the aged and infirm who do not require constant nursing and medical care. The R.H.H.I. bridges the gap between those two services by providing under one roof the security and comforts of a permanent home with facilities for hospital treatment and rehabilitation. Its 250 patients, mostly crippled by disease or accident, can no longer be looked after in their own homes.

: PORTRAIT OF A COLLIER

Jim Bullock in conversation with Tony Van den Bergh
Jim Bullock , who comes from a family of Yorkshire miners, went down the pit some fifty years ago at the age of thirteen. While working at the coal face he studied for his first-class ticket and eventually became a colliery manager. He is now President of the British Association of Colliery Management. During his lifetime he has seen profound industrial and social changes in mining communities, some of which, influenced by his own early experiences, he has helped to bring about.

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.
