: Horizon

The Vision of the Blind
Blindness is not the handicap we usually imagine it to be.
At a school in Warwickshire, blind children play football.
Horizon brings together the elements of a completely new approach to blindness, much of which comes from the ideas of the blind themselves.

: A Taste of Britain

The last of four programmes The Heart of England
' A regional dish is a whole countryside.'
Beef, from white-faced Hereford cattle, and draught beer from Worcestershire hops, should strike right to the heart of every true Englishman. But do they? Are they the same as they used to be? Derek Cooper samples some classic foods in the most English of counties - Hereford and Worcester - and on the way tries Evesham asparagus, Worcester sauce and the strange, boneless and increasingly rare river lampern.

: The Friendly Invasion

The second of three Omnibus films about the transatlantic take-over of our popular song and dance. From Jazz to Swing
'Spell it Jass, Jas, Jaz or Jazz - nothing can spoil a Jass band.'
In 1919 the 'Original Dixieland Jazz Band ' crossed the Atlantic and took Britain by storm. British imitations soon stalked the country, pumping out music for dancing. The rise of the Hollywood musical made things tough for British composers. And then the Americans thundered into their Swing era. Those filmed in America :

Marcello's life is spent trying to sublimate a childhood crime by behaving as conventionally as possible in pre-war Italy.

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.
