: We Were Caesars...

A fur trader made the claim in the 17th century, and it was no more than the truth.
The Hudson's Bay Company were once 'absolute lords and proprietors' over more than three million square miles of territory, and they are today the oldest chartered trading company in the world.
Their 300-year history has also been a history of transportation: a transatlantic voyage in a 43-ton ketch; journeys across a continent on foot and by canoe, and around the rim of the Arctic on snow shoes and with dog teams, by skidoo and tractor train. Nowadays, aircraft share in all of this -float planes for landing on water, ski-equipped planes for snow and ice.

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.
