The Treasure of Porto Santo
Introduced by Robert Stenuit
In a violent storm on the night of 19 November, 1724, the Dutch merchant ship Slot Ter Hooge was driven full speed into the terrifying cliffs of Porto Santo Island in the Madeiras. Two hundred and twenty men died and her cargo of oil, wine, brandy, foodstuffs - and three-and-a-half tons of bullion-was lost. In less than a year of the disaster an English diver, John Lethbridge , had performed amazing feats of salvage on the wreck to the pleasure and profit of his employers, the mighty Dutch East India Company. In all he recovered over three tons of the silver ingots and coins which the ship was carrying en route for Batavia in the Dutch East Indies.
Two hundred and fifty years later, the- Belgian diver and marine archaeologist Robert Stenuit dived on that same wreck after a detective hunt through the archives of Europe. His patience was rewarded with a complete chest full of silver bars which his distant predecessor had missed or was unable to recover. But Stenuit was now preoccupied with one question-how had Lethbridge, so long ago, performed his operations? Using a newly-discovered contemporary plan of the ' diving engine ', Stenuit has reconstructed Lethbridge's hair-raising experiments.
The result is both an intriguing historical detective story and a new development in experimental archaeology -conducted for the first time underwater!

: The Hollywood Musical: A Star is Born

starring Judy Garland James Mason
Already a show-business legend, Judy Garland made a dazzling return to Hollywood as the star of the first musical version of this story. James Mason's performance as the alcoholic actor was a similar triumph and George Cukor's stylish controlled direction shaped a film that is still the best of its kind today.

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.
