: Diary of a Village

One year in Heddington, Wiltshire. A documentary serial in seven parts 5: Of feuds and flags, pheasants and fêtes
May brings a double set-back for village schoolmaster John Stot hard. Voted off the Parish Council, he is foiled in his scheme for securing the Chairmanship to a friend. The Church becomes a Court for the day, as the Chancellor of the Diocese adjudicates on whether the Elizabethan flagon can be auctioned off to defray the cost of a new roof. It's pheasant-rearing time. Lord Shelburne's game-keepers need all their skill to bring the baby birds to the peak of their condition - in time to face the guns in the autumn.

: The Age of Uncertainty

A personal view by John Kenneth Galbraith of the rise and crisis of Industrial Society 11: The Metropolis
' The City is the focus of the problems of modern society - its uncertainty, crisis, hope, despair.'
PROFESSOR GALBRAITH looks at the economic and social forces that turned the magnificent conception of the Princely City step by step into the modern Metropolis with all its tensions. He analyses the interaction of these tensions and ways in which the initial sense of order and pride can be recaptured.

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.
