Reporter AZMAT BAJWA is a pin-striped city gent and knows how a good restaurant can promote business interests. He is more used to Indian cuisines, but today is looking for something a little more bijou and intimate. A small family-run restaurant in Newgate seems to fit the bill exactly ... and there are surprises! SHEILA MOHINDRA sings a ghazal.

: Praise Be!

with Thora Hird
Many of the letters Thora receives include a warm invitation for her to 'drop in for a cup of tea'. As part of tonight's programme Thora does just that, and calls in on the residents of Moorhaven Elderly Persons' Home at Taunton, for a chat about the hymns they've chosen, including many that bring comfort and light into darkness, ending with 'The day thou gavest, Lord, has ended', sung by the holiday crowds on the beach at St Ives, just as the sun was setting.
O worship the Lord (Was Lebet); Thou, whose almighty word (Moscow); The Lord's my Shepherd (Crimond); Thou didst leave thy throne (Margaret); Nearer, my God, to thee (Propior Deo); Shepherd's pipe carol; Be thou my vision (Slane); Brightest and best (Epiphany Hymn); The day thou gavest (St Clement)

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.
