: The New Foresters

The last of four programmes Fur and Feather
Most people who live in the countryside suffer at some time or other from damage caused by moles. Jack Sibley spent most of his life killing them; now he's retired. Dennis Skillicorn visited Jack to talk about his job and about the folklore that surrounds moles. Dennis also spent a day with Peter MurHn , a gamekeeper on the Beaulieu Estates. Peter came down to Beaulieu from Nottingham many years ago and has never wanted to return. A gamekeeper's life means working long hours every day; it's not a job for the nine-to-five man-as Dennis found out.

: The Flying Boats

The last of three programmes
In the Second World War the flying boats of RAF Coastal Command played a crucial part in the war at sea and it was the Sunderland that played the leading role.
Squadrons of Sunderlands flew in all theatres of war, guarding shipping lifelines and seeking out enemy fleets and U-boats. In peacetime they became part of the BOAC fleet of aircraft on the re-opened Empire routes, but their civilian role was shortlived. Bigger airports and larger runways meant bigger and faster landplanes and the flying boat was redundant. The last to be built, in 1952, was the Princess, the largest aircraft in the world at the time; she lived for only one year.
David Lomax concludes the story of the flying boats -a story many believe should have no ending.

: Comic Roots: Kenneth Williams

Architecture, poetry, art and music were the formative influences on the aesthete known to millions as Kenneth Williams: the slum architecture of St Pancras where he grew up; the liquid poetry of his grans fruity anecdotes; the art of the Marcel Wave practised by his hairdresser father, and the musical knees-ups of 'The Boot'. His first rave notices (as Princess Angelica - aged 8) and his success in lederhosen made him follow his lieder to higher things. But even drawing maps was not enough and after the Army only the stage could bring the parts other careers cannot reach.

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.
