: Waterline: Bonanza on the Broads

David Fairhall and Penny Bowles cover the world of ships, boats, and the sea.

Many people buy their first boat after enjoying a holiday on the Norfolk Broads. But the appeal of these peaceful reed-lined waterways is reduced in midsummer by overcrowding. Holidaymakers are estimated to be spending £3 million a year on the Broads, and boatyards expect to take another £3 million this year from hiring out cruisers and yachts. Can unused stretches of river be opened up to the Broads' sailors to ease the congestion?
Waterline examines the case for extending these inland waterways, from the village of Horning and on board a ketch cruising on Malthouse Broad.

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.
