: Alistair Cooke's Address to Congress

This month the United States Congress is 200 years old - and the anniversary of the first meeting of the Continental Congress in September 1774 is marked by a ceremony at noon today in the House of Representatives at which the broadcaster Alistair Cooke , author of the BBC2 series America, will make the major address.
This invitation makes Alistair Cooke the fourth native-born Englishman to address Congress. The others were Prime Ministers Churchill, Eden and Attlee.

: Yesterday's Witness

English Nurse with the Tsar's Army
When the First World War began a young Englishwoman was living in Moscow, governess to a wealthy Russian family.
At once Florence Farmborough volunteered as a Red Cross nurse to work among the wounded at the front. For three years she shared the privations and sufferings of the last of the Tsar's Armies, until Imperial Russia collapsed around her and the Revolution prevailed. And all she saw she recorded with her glassplate wooden camera, on pictures probably now unique.
MISS FARMBOROUGH'S story and her photographs are an extraordinary record of the end of an era, the last days of Imperial Russia and the rise of the Bolsheviks. She eventually escaped from the disintegrating war front by the Trans-Siberian Railway to Vladivostok, and finally to England, where at 87 she lives among her mementoes of the tumult of history.

2: Shawbost, Isle of Lewis
Living on an island appeals as an idea to a great many people, and the Scottish Hebrides have a special ring to their name. But is it so very different nowadays growing up there than anywhere else in the British Isles?
The children of Shawbost build up their impression of life on the island in their songs and sketches, drawings and poems.

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.
