appeals on behalf of The Maritime Trust (Reg No 268609) for the restoration of Captain Scott's Royal Research Ship Discovery. The last big wooden ship built in Britain, she survived many voyages in the Antarctic, carrying pioneering scientific expeditions. Built to withstand the crushing pressures of polar ice, she is now, after 83 years, urgently in need of restoration and preservation as a memorial to Captain Scott and his gallant men, and as a part of Britain's maritime heritage.

from the Mission to London Queen's Park Rangers
Earlier this summer the Mission to London, headed by the uncompromising Latin American evangelist Luis Palau , took over Queen's Park Rangers football stadium to preach the Gospel. Each night thousands made their way to the stadium to listen and to sing their songs of praise, accompanied by the SALTMINE BAND. Paul McDowell went along, too, to meet some of the people involved in the Mission, talk to some of those who went to hear, and question Luis Palau himself about his beliefs and methods.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
