: Laurel and Hardy: Laughing Gravy

Two of the world's greatest laughter-makers in a selection of their famous short films.
A Hal Roach film

Laurel and Hardy are concealing a dog in their apartment against the orders of their landlord. When he finds out, they are forced to throw the animal out into the snow, and then spend most of the night endeavouring to bring him in again. Needless to say, their efforts result in their apartment being transformed into a shambles, but a stroke of 'luck' leads to a happy conclusion.

: F.A. Cup Special

David Coleman reports on today's F.A. Cup Fourth Round

Thirty-two clubs compete in today's round of the F.A. Challenge Cup competition. Already five First Division clubs have been eliminated-Ipswich Town, Leeds United, Nottingham Forest, Queen's Park Rangers, and Sunderland. Which First Division giants will today join them? It could be the holders themselves, West Bromwich Albion, who are away to Fulham, surprise team of the Third Round; or Manchester United, who meet Third Division success side Watford; or even Arsenal, who clash with London rivals Charlton. As always, shocks are guaranteed.
David Coleman, Alan Weeks, and Kenneth Wolstenholme report with outside broadcast cameras on three of today's exciting Cup Ties.

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.
