A See-Saw programme

: The New Foresters

A series of four programmes featuring people who live and work in the New Forest. 1: Of Horses and Men
Many thousands of people visit the forest each year to walk the forest paths and to admire the trees, heathlands and wildlife. But it is also a place where people live, where artists seek their inspiration and many folk make their living. In this first programme Dennis Skillicorn travels to Sway to meet Ron Ings , who makes his living breaking in horses for the ever-increasing band of riders and carriage drivers. At Bramshaw he visits the local blacksmith Roger Skinner , and at Ringwood farmer Tom Samson shows him his old traditional farm machinery and his team of heavy horses. For Tom, 'life wouldn't be worth living without them'.

: If I Had My Way

The feature film starring Bing Crosby. Gloria Jean
When young Patricia Johnsons father is killed in an accident ' Buzz' Blackwell and two friends adopt her. They leave San Francisco for New York in the hope of depositing Patricia with some rich relatives. Unfortunately the uncle and aunt have no such plans ... Crosby is in fine form as the singing bridge-builder, in a film where the accent is as much on comedy as on music.

: Songs of Praise

from Oystermouth
Oystermouth is the heart of Mumbles, just four miles along the promenade from Swansea, within easy reach of the industrial belt of South Wales. It's surrounded by peaceful, sandy coves tucked beneath spectacular cliffs; a haven for the men who work in the mines and steel works, and their families.
Tonight John Stuart Roberts takes a trip into history to look for the remains of the Mumbles Railway, the oldest passenger-carrying railway in the world, and talks to local people, including Mrs Elsie Noel who lost three of her family in the lifeboat disaster of 1947. A new window has been dedicated to the men of the lifeboat in All Saints Church, Oystermouth, where local Christians join to sing their songs of praise.
Come, rejoice before your Maker (Abbot's Leigh); Sent forth by God's blessfng (The Ash Grove); Eternal Father. strong to save (Melita); The Gospel train; Take my life. and let it be (Stuttgart); Glory be to Jesus (Caswall); All my hope on God Is founded (Michael); Praise the Lord, his glories show (Llanfair)

Island of Fear

: Animal Magic Goes Cruising

with Terry Nutkins
Puffins, seals, eagles, deer, lobsters and pine martens - just some of the animals Terry sees on a boat trip round the islands of the Inner Hebrides, off the west coast of Scotland.
Terry goes swimming with common seals, dives for sponges and clams, climbs some remote cliffs to stand within a few feet of a colony of puffins, and watches the magnificent red deer on Rhum. The climax to the trip comes when
Terry sees a pine marten - the first time this beautiful carnivore has ever been filmed in .the wild in this country.

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.
