: Inside the Tower

' It's a lovely place to live, really, for London. In fact I'm sure there's nowhere better to live in than the Tower.'
In the 900 years since it was built, the Tower of London has been many things to many people: fortress palace, barracks, prison, tourist attraction. armoury, mint, jewell house, zoo ... But, incongruous though it may seem, the great stone edifice is also home for the Governor, the officers of the Tower, and the 37 yeomen warders with their families. What sort of people are they, these inhabitants of the Tower? What's the world's greatest tourist attraction like to live in? And what's it really like to be a yeoman of the guard?
Jessica Mayer decided to find out. and invites you to join her and meet the residents Inside the Tower.

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.
