: Everybody's Doin' It

The last of eight programmes Old Age
The raw material for this series was 38 miles of film shot by home movie-makers in the 1920s and 30s. None of it was more evocative than that which concerned old age.
There's something elusive about old age. It defies definition. Somebody once asked a lady how old she was. ' Oh,' she said, ' it depends on the day.' Written and narrated by JOHN JULIUS NORWICH

: The World About Us

Baleia, Baleia
Whalers of the Azores
Narrated by PATRICK ALLEN
Baleia - Portuguese for whale - is a cry that signals the start of the hunt for the most awesome creature of the ocean. In the classic tradition of Moby Dick the Azorean whalers still challenge the giant sperm whale using hand-thrown harpoons - but their days are numbered.
Massive factory ships have taken over and the communities whose livelihood depends on whaling are now - like the whales themselves - threatened with extinction.

A Yesterday's Witness series of six programmes in which British men and women recall their unusual or little-known lives in uniform. 5:Two Legionnaires

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.
