: Jackanory: The Night-Watchmen: Tramps and Barrows

Joseph O'Conor tells The Night-Watchmen by Helen Cresswell with pictures by Gareth Fwyd
Henry met Josh and Caleb in the park. They looked like tramps, but there was obviously something very unusual about them. 'You've got Here, and you've got There. We're from There,' explained Josh.
'And where's There?' asked Henry.
'Ah,' said Josh, ' You'd have to take the night train to find out. And that you'll never do because you belong Here.'

: Made in Britain

Spotlight on the export drive
Britain is the home of the thoroughbred racehorse. At current prices for big-race winners, British horses can, quite literally, be worth their weight in gold - which makes racing not just a sport but an industry. But there's a paradox. As another season of horse-sales gets under way the big question is 'are we too successful at exporting?'

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.
