All at Sea
Every Sunday in summer the fifty-year-old schooner Hoshi sets sail from Salcombe harbour manned by different members of the Island Cruising Club. This week they include an American airline pilot, a farmer, an engineer, an R.A.F. officer, and a civil servant. But the cook, the mate. and the skipper are always the same -and all three are women: a unique boat with a unique crew.

The Marathon Men
They run to work in the morning. they run during their lunch hour, and Then they run home in the evening. They are the Marathon men, and they are not happy unless they have clocked up 100 miles a week. There are more of them in Britain than in any other country. Is this a case of mad dogs and Englishmen...?

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

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.
