Passport to Pimlico starring Stanley Holloway. Hermione Baddeley
Margaret Rutherford , Paul Dupuis As Pimlico swelters in a heat-wave, a deafening explosion hurls the residents into a bewildering sequence of events. London's last bomb has not only blown a hole in their designated recreation ground but uncovered a vast treasure and a decree that Pimlico should be part of France. Ration books are torn up and licensing laws abandoned: but life is not all beer and boules in downtown Burgundy.

: The Light Fantastick

The story of Canadian animation
Nearly 40 years ago, the distinguished Scottish documentary film-maker John Grierson founded the National Film Board of Canada.
Since then, this remarkable organisation has produced amongst its varied output, a steady stream of brilliant cartoon films - witty, irreverent, informative, sometimes didactic but never dull.
This programme looks at many of these cartoons and at the animators who made them, including Norman McLaren , who is recognised as one of the greatest animators of all time.

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.
