: Number 10 Downing Street: 1: The Story of a House

A two-part film
Sir Robert Walpole, the first British prime minister, moved into Number 10 in September 1735 - 250 years ago. Since then, the splendid house that lies behind a very modest front door has been the centre of the nation's history, and the home of some of its most powerful People. Former prime Ministers and their wives talk about the ghosts of Number 10 and what it was like to live there; the families of Ramsay MacDonald, Lloyd George and Winston Churchill describe their days in the rambling old house; and People who were there tell how history was made in Number 10 during the two world wars.
A view is given of the state rooms, now restored to the magnificence that Sir Robert Walpole knew when he became the tenant of Number 10.
Written and narrated by Christopher Jones

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.
