James Kerry tells The Kitchen Madonna by Rumer Godden

Gregory wanted to buy a picture of Jesus and his Mother, Mary, for Marta to hang in the kitchen - like the one she'd had in Russia when she was a little girl. But he had no money. So Gregory -who never made anything or spoke to anyone - made something wonderful just out of scraps and hard thinking, and he made a lot of new friends as well.

: Made in Britain

Products - ideas - techniques
Spotlight on the men, the methods, the markets, that are earning Britain's living abroad.
Things are changing at the Post Office - two-tier postage; corporation status; decimalisation. A quieter revolution happened in 1964. For 40 years before that, special issue stamps were a rarity; since then 37 new issues have added colour to our mail. Stamps are big business and potentially bigger. Post Office revenue - dealer revenue - auction revenue - printer revenue.

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.
