The Great Bank Robberies
[Starring] The Cisco Kid
Old General Lawrence still fights the Civil War in his imagination. Bad men pose as his troopers and under this cloak of respectability terrorise the countryside. They accuse Cisco and Pancho of the murder of one of their number and the General condemns them to death. The friends escape, however, and in a thrilling battle turn the tables on the outlaws.

The Page of Chinon
A play for television.
Written and produced by Rex Tucker
(Douglas Blackwell is appearing in "No Time for Sergeants" at Her Majesty's Theatre, London)
On March 6, 1429, Joan of Arc, the village girl, came to the Dauphin's castle at Chinon. She told him that God had called her to crown him King and to drive the English invaders out of France. Six weeks later she rode out from Chinon at the head of three thousand men. During those six weeks she lived in the castle, fretting with impatience while the great ones made up their minds. In this period the play takes place.

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.
