: The Ritz

A candid look at a day in the life of a grand hotel; upstairs and front of house with the clients, downstairs and behind the scenes with the valets, chambermaids, chefs and waiters who have to keep the clients happy.
The Ritz was once the stamping-ground of everybody who was anybody. But the attractions were fading. Now the grand old lady - 75 this year - has been given a £6-million facelift and it is hoped, a new lease of the 'high life'.
Some of the staff have spent half their lives in service here. Some of the clients have been coming for 60 years. But the Ritz can't afford to live in the past. And so it. tries to cling to the old traditions while still catering for the new Ritz people - businessmen, tourists and gentlemen from the Middle East.

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.
