Leighton House
This week join SNAGGE visits a home that epitomises the Victorian era. the house of a former president of the Royal Academy, Lord Leighton. Leighton travelled widely and developed an interest in Eastern art that led him to build in his London home an Arab hall, complete with a fountain and Oriental tiles. Upstairs is the Great Studio which was used by models and art dealers about whom Leighton once said: ' I never enter into discussion about my pictures with gentlemen such as yourselves. I have given you my terms-that is quite enough.' Producer ROGER CLARK

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.
