: Songs of Praise

from Weston-super-Mare
Two hundred years ago Weston-super-Mare was an unknown fishing and smuggling hamlet to the south of the Severn estuary. Then came the passion for indulging in sea bathing as a rest-cure, and in 1810 the first guest-house was built and named ' The Belvedere'. Today Weston-super-Mare is a major holiday resort and one of the fastest-growing towns in Europe Now that winter has set in and the holidaymakers are gone, the Christian community has time to find itself once again. Seamus McKee meets just some of them as 32 local churches join together to sing their Songs of Praise. come, let us Join our cheerful songs

: Haywire

The first of a two-part screen adaptation of BROOKE HAYWARD 's best-selling memoirs starring
' My mother was a star, Margaret Sullavan, a shining idol of her generation. My father was Leland Hayward, a producer, agent, rich, glamorous legend himself. They were happily married for ten years, had three children in even succession ... This is a story of carelesseness and guilt; of people who have lived at extremes. My parents failed as they succeeded - on a massive scale. They left behind them a legacy, vested in their children, that only two of us survived.'

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.
