This Story of Yours
John Hopkins's first play for the theatre opens this week in London. Tonight the award-winning television playwright talks about himself and his current writing. This includes The Virgin Soldiers screenplay, the Columbia Pictures production now shooting; a television play; and two film scripts-one a love story and the other an epic.

The Euston Arch
Demolished in 1961, the Euston Arch was a great piece of architecture and the symbol of the great railway age. Why was it demolished? Tonight, to coincide with the publication of a book by the architects Alison and Peter Smithson, Ian Nairn travels to Euston and talks about the Arch.

Willem de Kooning
Dutch-born artist Willem de Kooning has been one of the most influential painters of the New York school which emerged immediately after the War, when his savage, expressionist style made a tremendous impact on the art world.
On the occasion of his first comprehensive exhibition in this country which opened at the Tate Gallery last Thursday, Release shows de Kooning in his studio at work and talking about his work.

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.
