: Reith of the BBC

When Lord Reith's diaries were published recently they caused a furore. They showed that the man who 'founded' the BBC was more complex and controversial than many people imagined. Some critics have argued that the diaries have done much harm and should have been destroyed.
Now that the dust has settled ROGER CLARK talks to their editor, CHARLES STUART, and asks how accurate a picture they give of the man, and whether his reputation has been irreparably damaged. Included in the programme will be recordings of LORD REITH and opinions from JOHN SNAGGE.

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.
