: Seems Like Yesterday

Hope Sprints Eternal
In 1952 Britain went to the Olympic Games full of confidence - after all, we had MacDonald Bailey , Chris Chataway and Roger Bannister.
In the event Britain won only one gold medal and that was won by a horse - Foxhunter. It was just one of the high hopes we cherished 25 years ago - another was the National Health Service. It was, some thought, the national panacea. Tonight, in the last programme of the series, Julian Pettifer compares our health and fitness as a nation in 1952 with today.

: Diary of a Village

One year in Heddington, Wiltshire. A docum enfcary serial in seven parts 7: It Never Rains ...
It's Heddington's Old Tyme Fair. It will raise £1,000 if the weather holds. There's widespread concern about the church and the organ - and the roof timbers are far worse than was thought. Heddington's 11-year-olds leave the village on their first step into the outside world - the comprehensive school in Calne. And in The Ivy, they celebrate the Harvest Festival. Finally, the year comes full circle as Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs goes into rehearsal - with the village writing in the camera crew as the Dwarfs. Directed and narrated by DAVID PRITCHARD

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.
