: Blue Peter

with Simon Groom, Christopher Wenner and Tina Heath
Fit for a Queen
A teddy made of chrysanthemums, a koala bear with a plum for a nose and an owl sitting under a banana moon were just three of the hundreds of stunning floral displays admired by Her Majesty The Queen when she made her first-ever visit to Westminster Cathedral for the International Year of the Child Flower Festival. Blue Peter film cameras were there to record this historic event and so were nine Blue Peter viewers aged from five to 16 -winners of the Flower Picture competition.
For Cristian, Kate, Una, James, Christine, Rebecca, Lesley, Jenny and Sarah, who were all presented to Her Majesty, this particular Friday the 13th was one they'll remember for the rest of their lives!

: Public School

A candid portrait of life in Westminster, one of England's oldest and most famous public schools.

Westminster School is situated in the heart of London, behind the Abbey, overshadowed by the Houses of Parliament. In 400 years it has produced six prime ministers as well as Ben Jonson, John Dryden, Sir Christopher Wren, Tony Benn, Andrew Lloyd Webber and the spy Kim Philby.

Reporter Fran Morrison has followed four characters through their daily life at Westminster - Simon Target, a senior scholar falling behind in his work; Daisy Goodwin, a sixth-form girl in a school where boys outnumber girls by ten to one; Christopher Potter, a first-year scholar in a dormitory of clever 13-year-olds; and a teacher, Rory Stuart, the young Head of the English Department. They, and Headmaster John Rae, talk frankly about academic pressures, the relationships between boys and girls, and the problems of drink and drugs.

: Fairies

by GEOFFREY CASE with ' I'd stake my reputation on it. These photographs are not faked.' But how could photographs, taken on a simple camera by two Yorkshire village girls, have momentous implications for man's understanding of the world?
Writing, casting, direction and design were all excellent (OBSERVER) Touchingly convincing ... (THE LISTENER) ... a bravura performance by James Grout ... delightful performances from Sarah Wright and Linda Searle.
Shunning all temptation ... to indulge in fey camera capers ... a brisk, compelling narrative ... unforced acting was joined to a strong sense of period.

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.

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.
