: The Duke's Award

The first of two programmes written and presented by HRH The Prince Edward

Prince Edward attempts to discover whether his father's Award Scheme really does help to encourage the full development of the individual.
The large West Indian in the green frock and the ginger wig certainly thought it did, as did the lady jockey, two young reprobates from Liverpool and the man who was worried that it might be treason if he drowned the Queen's youngest son.
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh himself wasn't entirely sure what the scheme had set out to achieve, but, after 30 years and millions of successful participants, he wasn't too concerned about its health.

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.
