: Songs of Praise

from Auchengillan Scout Camp
In the summer of 1907 Robert Baden-Powell took 20 boys to Brownsea Island in Dorset, on an experimental camp to test his ideas of training young people for adulthood. Seventy-five years later there are 16 million Scouts around the world. Tonight a thousand Christian Scouts come together to sing hymns in the open air, and some of them talk to Geoffrey Wheeler about Scouting in the 80s.

with Barry Norman
Englishmen's Gardens: Hardy Amies , the royal couturier, Sir Frederick Gibberd , the architect, and Lord De Ramsey have a passion for gardening and have created gardens which splendidly reflect their personalities just as much as their horticultural ambitions. Hardy Amies 's garden is precise and formal, Sir Frederick's a bewitching maze combining architecture and sculpture, and Lord De Ramsey 's acres bring together many styles in the grand manner. All three took Omnibus on a conducted tour.
Le grand macabre is an opera by avant-garde composer Ligeti. It boasts a chorus of motor horns, is set on a motorway flyover and promises to be the most talked about show to be staged by the English National Opera this year. Producer Elijah Mojinsky , Head of the National Opera Lord Harewood, and the composer tell us what it's all about.

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.

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.
