: Having a Baby: 14

A series of 16 programmes

'You've changed him, you've fed him, you put him down and - he just starts crying again.' The sound of a baby crying is a fact of life for all new parents, but some babies seem to cry and cry for no reason at all, creating a vicious circle in which the baby gets even more frustrated and the parents feel even less able to cope. Claire Woolford looks at the problem of the 'crying baby' and discusses safety in the home with a health visitor. Claire Rayner answers a viewer's letter.

: In Her Majesty's Service

A series of six films
4: Malcolm Innes of Edingighi, Marchmont Herald and Lyon Clerk The Court bf Lord Lyon in Scotland has its origins in the 12th century when knights first used distinguishing marks on their surcoats for easy identification in the heat of battle.
As Lyon Clerk and Keeper of the Records, Malcolm Innes is responsible for maintaining a priceless collection of heraldic records dating back to the 16th century. He also helps Lord Lyon King of Arms in the daily administration of what is still a very active heraldic court.
His duties as Marchmont Herald are principally ceremonial and culminated in his recent attendance on The Queen, with the other heralds, at the installation of Prince Charles as a Knight of the Thistle at St Giles's Cathedral. Edinburgh.

: The Gamekeeper

One year's work; 2,000 pheasants safely reared, and 1,000 pheasants shot. A documentary about the annual cycle of a keeper's life on a Wessex farm, joining his life while he rears the birds; turns them into free-flying wild birds, but persuades them not to stray; protects them from their natural enemies like foxes and poachers - and finally drives them towards the guns.
The Keepers:
Don Ibberson - began keeping 1965
Jack Lewis - began keeping 1921
Viv Townsend-began keeping 1907

: The Young Man and the Lion

The 'Young Man' in Jean Anouilh's version of the famous historical romance is Roland, the legendary hero who fought with 1,000 men in an ambush at Roncevaux, protecting the retreat of the Franks from Moorish Spain. A tender love story links him with his hostage Aude, the beautiful Saxon princess he has won from the 'Lion', his uncle, the Emperor Charlemagne. In spite of all the clashes of arms, thundering hooves of cavalry charges, burnings and mass executions, Charlemagne emerges as a great human (sometimes even humorous) character, whose amusements include pitting his own strength in contests of swimming, wrestling, sword-fights - and women...

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.
