: Look, Stranger: Man of Letters

Ronnie Robson featured in Radio Times last week, is a rural postman whose daily round takes him to the Highside, a remote part of Yorkshire. He always wanted to be a postman - his father was one in the same area.
Ronnie writes a weekly column in the Ripon Gazette about life on the Highside which most of his 'customers' read. Highsiders are used to a hard life. Ronnie is their link. He brings them post, news and, very often, a helping hand.

: Specialists in Murder: Accessory After the Fact: The Setty Murder

In 1949 a well-known West End car dealer disappeared overnight. This account of the subsequent police investigation which disclosed a chain of bizarre and macabre events is taken from the casebook of Professor Francis Camps, for many years one of the world's foremost forensic pathologists, who played a vital part in solving the mystery.

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.
