: Will Hay in The Ghost of St Michael's

A feature film with Claude Hulbert , Charles Hawtrey
When 'St Michael 's School' is evacuated to the eerie Dunbain Castle on the Isle of Skye, William Lamb - their new teacher - naturally goes with them. He soon learns that the castle is haunted by the ghost of Mad MacKinnon and that the bagpipes sound when someone is about to die ...
This comedy thriller, set in war-time Britain, is not only one of Hay's funniest films but also an exciting and often tense murder mystery.
Screenplay by ANGUS MACPHAIL and JOHN DIGHTOH Produced by MICHAEL BALCON Directed by MARCEL VARNEL

: Public School

A series of documentary films set in one of Britain's top boarding schools for boys.
3: Too Much, Too Early, Kills
The Warden (or headmaster) of Radley is a teacher, administrator and Court of Last Resort.
He is a prop to the college's morale, a guardian of its standards, its spokesman, advocate and vindicator.
Dennis Silk is the 14th Warden of Radley. He is a staunch Christian, brilliant cricketer, and a lover of gardening and English literature. In this portrait he is observed as he copes with Radley's day-to-day chores and problems: a new Sub-Warden to be appointed; parents to be harangued on the dangers of over-indulging their sons; two boys to be punished for drunkenness. This at a time when a vital General Election was under way, and Labour was committed to the abolition of schools like Radley.

: Man Alive

This week: Fighting Back
TROOPER KEITH THOMPSON , aged 18, and SECOND LIEUTENANT PAUL CUR RELL, 22. were almost given up for dead when they were blown up on security patrols 18 months ago. Their lives were saved by surgeons and nurses at Belfast Royal Hospital using new techniques that have become the envy of the medical world, and Man Alive followed their return to consciousness in the much-acclaimed film, Fighting for Life. Since then hospitals have been battling to restore both men to health and independence.
Lieutenant Currell, who had a leg blown off has had to learn to walk again and is still in the army. Keith Thompson , who suffered severe head injuries and has had to learn to read and write again at the age of 19, has left the army and found a job despite partial paralysis.
Harold Williamson follows their determined fight to make a fresh start against impossible odds.

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.

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.
