: The Other House of Windsor

The Villa Windsor is the name by which the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's last home in Paris's
Bois de Bologne is commonly known. The former King Edward VIII and his wife Wallis Simpson leased it from the French government in 1953 and it reverted to the French state after the death of the Duchess in 1986. Since then it has been meticulously restored to its original splendour by Mohammed Al-Fayed of Harrods fame. This One Foot in the Past film gives a rare opportunity to see the results of the conservation work - the villa is now a private museum, and closed to the public.
On an intimate tour of its interior, Lucinda Lambton picks out the domestic details revealed by the rooms and their contents: the table on which the king signed the abdication in 1936, for example, a musical box that plays God Save the King, the piano once played by Cole Porter. And it seems the modern-thinking duke preferred the shower to the bath; the latter was used to house his collection of 12,000 photographs. Director Jamie Muir

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.
