: British Film Comedy: Mr Ten Per Cent

Starring Charlie Drake
with George Baker, Annette Andre, John Le Mesurier, Derek Nimmo

Budding playwright Percy Pointer finds an impresario willing to stage his 'masterpiece' - but only because, for tax purposes a sure-fire flop is required. Percy alone has faith in his great drama, but to the surprise of his backer and producer the play proves a huge success - as a comedy!

: The Times of Printing House Square: Tuesday's Documentary

The story of a newspaper

It started life in the 1780s as a four-page advertising sheet. It wasn't even called The Times to begin with. Its first proprietor went to gaol for libel. It prospered so quickly that by the 1820s it was considered the leading journal in Europe, and could be described as 'the greatest organ of temporary opinion in the world.' It moulded policies, toppled governments, attacked establishments, whether political or military.

Like all great institutions it was sometimes dynamic, sometimes fossilised; but when its fortunes ebbed there were always remarkable journalists, or remarkable proprietors, at hand to rescue it. It has survived 188 tempestuous years, is still thought of in many parts of the world as the flag, as Britain; and hasn't finished with history yet.

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.
