: Time Out

Count Ten and You're Alive Again
Six landing craft clip through the mists towards a hostile shore. As the boats hit the beach and the men scramble ashore, a burst machine gun fire cuts down half the first wave. It's a dawn attack on the New Forest-Territorial Army style.
Time Out cameras have followed the T.A. from a guided missile base in Anglesey to active service posts in Aden; from the local drill hall to the Regimental Mess of the Honourable Artillery company; investigating the life of Britain part-time citizen army.

The Archers
Time Out cameras visited Arundel Castle last weekend for the Arundown open meeting, which traditionally attracts more than two hundred men and women archers and is one of the most picturesque sporting events of the year.

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.
