: Come Lasses and Lads

Every summer 700 boys and girls put down pens and pencils, pick up violins, cellos, recorders and song books and make their way to the Town Hall. This is the time of the Reading Schools' Music Festival when the music makers -none older than 11-entertain music lovers of all ages.
The town is proud of its musical children: one child in four is learning to play a musical instrument. The house is always packed with the critical parents of Reading, who have come to expect an outstandingly high standard. This is the 25th year of the Festival - the first time ever on television. Arranged and conducted by Noel Hale

Colin Welland and Ian Wooldridge presenting Match of the Day from Wimbledon
The Lawn Tennis Championships
Highlights of today's outstanding match on the fifth day's play at the All England Club.
JACK KRAMER comments on the action, which is introduced by HARRY CARPENTER.
Boycott for Captain?
Geoff Boycott captain of England? To some in cricket it would seem logical; to others, disastrous. The former point to his batting, knowledge and determination; the latter say he is selfish, unsporting and unsuited. Boycott talks about himself and captaincy in a film which examines his technique and his temperament.

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.
