Children's Newsreel

The Maid of Domremy
by Joe Corrie.
From the statue by Chapu.
Most people know the story of Joan of Arc, who dressed herself in soldier's clothes and led the French army to victory against the English. But nobody knows the whole story-nobody knows exactly what Joan's life was like before she set out to save France. What were her father and mother like? Did she have any brothers and sisters? How did she become convinced that God meant her to be the saviour of her country? Mr. Joe Corrie has tried to answer these questions in this play, which shows the seventeen-year-old Maid a few days before she sets out on her inspired mission. She is still in her father's home in the village of Domremy in the year 1429.

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.
