: Whicker's World: Living with Uncle Sam

Ten films in which Alan Whicker talks to Brits who have gone to live in the USA.
6: Some Americans Think God was a 17th-century Englishman ...
The Rev Hugh Hildesley is rector at the socially-desirable Church of Heavenly Rest on New York's Fifth Avenue. For years he was an auctioneer at Sotheby's, USA. He is full of praise for the role ordained women play in America: 'the sooner Britain catches up, the better'. Other successful Brits living in New York include Shirley Lord, a Vogue editor: 'you learn not to be a shrinking violet'; the actor Jim Dale; Philip Kingsley, a multi-millionaire trichologist - for, by happy chance, eight out of ten Americans have dandruff; and David Lloyd-Jacob , who has borrowed to start a business and now pays interest of 10,000 dollars a day: 'More than anywhere else in the world, New York tests you. There is a sense of lurking danger, but we love it.'

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.

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