: GOING FOR.A SONG

A special programme in which
Tim Clarke
Arthur Grimwade
Julian Thompson
Hermione Waterfield talk about antiques of their choice and try to identify some puzzle objects
In the chair, Johnny Morris
Producer, JOHN KING from the South and West
You will notice several differences in today's programme, the last in the present series. There is no Max Robertson , no Arthur Negus. The customers are absent from their seats on the chairman's left. Johnny Morris , who has graced the programme once or twice before, will simply chat about objects of beauty and antiquity with four experts. But this does not set a new style. When the programme returns a few weeks hence both Max Robertson and Arthur Negus will be back. And the customers will be in their usual places.

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.
