: Diary of a Village

One year in Heddington, Wiltshire. A documentary serial in eight parts. 1: A Scattered Village, a Mucky Village
November 1975, and the lanes are splattered with mud - and worse. Should the farmers clean up the mess their cows are making? The Parish Council is divided. There's another problem: the church roof will collapse unless it's repaired. The only way of raising £10,000 in a hurry is to sell its heirloom-the Elizabethan flagon. To crown all, Mother Goose, Heddington's panto, runs into a disaster on the very eve of the First Night.

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.
