: Going Up

The BBC1 Documentary
A personal look at being a new boy at an old university by Antony Jay
Nearly 30 years ago, ANTONY JAY ' went up' to Cambridge and for three years he lived in the historic buildings of Magdalene College reading Classics.
Last autumn he went back to his old college to re-live the experiences of his first weeks at an ancient university from the other side of the generation gap. The programme takes him back into the world of tutorials and sherry parties, of porters and bed-makers, of lectures and coffee evenings and dinners in the candlelit hall. He looked at three freshmen from the day of their arrival and by watching them feel their way through the first weeks he saw how much has changed and how much is permanent and unchangeable.

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.
