Children of one Family
STANLEY WILSON expected that if anything in Saffron Walden were named after him it would be the public lavatory. A lifelong rebel, he fought for political causes because he cared deeply about people. At 50 Stanley married KITTY EDWARDS. His opponents hoped he would mellow and named an Old Folks Home after him.
But the real Wilson monument is their own home for children in care where they are bringing up the last of their unlimited family.

Gallant as always, Smith and Jones stop and help two nuns whose wagon has broken down.

: The Longbow

In this Chronicle film Robert Hardy tells the story of the Longbow - the simple yew stave which in the hands of the yeoman bowman became the dreaded war weapon of the English in the Middle Ages. He traces its origins from the late Stone Age to its devastating use at the Battle of Crecy in 1346. Not until the American Civil War, 500 years later, was a weapon devised to match its rate of fire.
The author makes his own longbows and has won competitions with them. He uses his vast knowledge to explain the legends which have grown up around a piece of wood which held Europe in fear for more than 100 years.

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.

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.
