: Diary of a Village

One year in Heddington, Wiltshire. A documentary serial in eight parts. 3 : ... And a Stormy New Year
January comes in like a lion, and the old oak by the T-junction becomes unsafe. It has to be felled. But by a slight error it falls on the power cables and farmer Tyler has no electricity at milking time. There's a passionate row at the Village Hall over who should be caretaker. There's bad news on the selling of the Elizabethan flagon, which will raise enough at auction to save the church roof. The Chancellor of the Diocese has referred the matter to a Consistory Court. It means delays, and a greater risk that permission to sell may be withheld.

: The Book Programme

Introduced by Robert Robinson
In John Hillaby 's first book Journey through Britain he established himself as one of the best-selling travel writers, and in his new book, Journey through Love, he writes about some of his favourite walks in Britain, and about the most difficult ordeal of his life -the long American walk he took to help overcome the despair he suffered after the death of his wife Tilly. He talks of his love of walking and the people and places he has written about.
Also this week, a look at the work of Kingsley Amis - from the angry 50s of Lucky Jim to the strangely re-ordered contemporary world of his new novel The Alteration.

: The Hollywood Musical: Kiss Me Kate

Kathryn Grayson , Howard Keel with Ann Miller
Fourteen show-stopping songs by Cole Porter made Kiss Me Kate a Broadway hit for over two years.
Top-liner Fred Graham is to star in Cole Porter's new show - and he wants both his ex-wife and his girlfriend to play leading roles in the production. All is well until they discover that it is an updated version of The Taming of The Shrew and their suitability for the roles of Katherine and Bianca is all too obvious.
Based on the play bySAMUEL SPEWACK and BELLA SPEWACK

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.
