Millie Fairways is the beautiful young figurehead of the Fairways financial empire which her father created and which her directors are busily increasing. Bur she can see that no one wants her or loves her for her own sake. Small wonder if she is rather taken with the outspoken candour of the rough-spoken young chauffeur they have given her.

: The Epilogue: Where Prayer Has Been Valid

This was the description given by T.S. Eliot to Little Gidding, a small peaceful hamlet in Huntingdonshire, where in the seventeenth century Nicholas Ferrar started a small religious community devoted to work and worship. Nothing remains of the house and farm, but the tiny church has become a place of pilgrimage. This film tries to capture something of Little Gidding's atmosphere and spirit.

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.
