: Play School: Useful Box Day

A programme for children at home
Presenters this week, Carol Chell, Gordon Clyde
Today's story: 'Inch by Inch' by Leo Lionni

A sky-view flat at the top of a high block, a small country cottage, or perhaps a grand castle-if you could choose, what kind of house would you like to live in? The Play School poem this week is about different sorts of houses:
Some houses are round
Some houses are square
Some houses are high up in the air
Some houses are fat
Some houses are thin
There are all kinds of houses for you to live in
(to 11.20)

To the occupants of the garden of 25 Telegraph Road the 'Human Beans' world sometimes looks a lot of fun. But parties with drink, singing and dancing can look better than they are, and sometimes it's a good thing to be on the outside looking in, especially if your viewpoint is astro-gnomic.

: Yesterday's Witness: Prisoners of Conscience: No to the State

A series which explores living memory

In 1916 the archaic British penal system was menaced by a new sort of critic in the cells. Prisons were never to be the same again.
"Funny isn't it - you've got ten years for killing somebody - and I've got ten years because I won't kill anybody"
"Looking at it from now, I would say we demonstrated that it is impossible to break the spirit of men who are really convinced. And we have written conscientious objection permanently into the law of England"
(First World War Conscientious Objectors)

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
