Early on summer Sunday mornings, long before most people are awake, cyclists in multi-coloured racing vests can be seen dashing along the deserted roads.

: Hospital

The seventh in a series of nine documentary films about the Bolton Area Health Authority. A Working Day
All days in a hospital are a mixture of drama and routine. If the routine was neglected, every drama would be a tragedy.
-A plastic surgeon has to correct six-month-old Joanna's cleft-palate. -The finance sub-committee are apportioning next year's budgets. - In Out-patients the staff are injecting varicose veins with a new drug.
- Engineers are stripping down the boilers that supply the hospital with steam for sterilising.
- Out in the town agoraphobics are being acclimatised to open places.
-A woman has a lump removed from her breast: if on analysis the growth is malignant, there will be a mastectomy.
This is just one day.

: Arena: Theatre

this month looks at two virtuoso solo performances.
Leonard Rossiter is currently tackling his most demanding role as The Immortal Haydon. Alone on stage for two hours, he portrays the mad 18th-century painter Benjamin Haydon , whose life of wild fantasy and ambition ended in suicide.
Nola Rae is a mime artist, clown, and one of the funniest women on the stage. She re-creates for Arena some of her bizarre and poignant characters, and Michael Dean makes a valiant attempt to interview her.

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.
