Spokesong: Does a history of the bicycle sound a surprising way of looking at the changes in society since the turn of the century? It's Stewart Parker 's theme in his new musical play Spokesong - one of the most cheering pieces of work to have come out of Northern Ireland in recent years. The programme includes scenes from the show at the King's Head Theatre Club and an interview with the author.
At Home with Mole: Richard Goolden first played the part of Mole in Toad of Toad Hall in 1930. He lives in mole-like surroundings in Chelsea, where a lifetime's enthusiasm for music-hall, French poetry, interior decorating, famous murders etc has piled up around him. This short profile of the 81-year-old actor includes scenes from Toad of Toad Hall and Tom Stoppard 's Dirty Linen and New-Found-Land, in which he is appearing at the Arts Theatre.

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.
