: Under Sail

The last of a series of six programmes about sailing ships that have survived.
Brown Boats and Wherries - two traditional Norfolk craft which have survived changed times on the Broads.
The brown boats are yachts. Thirty-one were built in the early 1900s for local families, who raced them on Oulton Broad. Of these, 29 still exist - thanks to the devoted care of Lady Mayhew, who has sailed them for 80 years. By contrast the story of the wherries is a tragedy. Thir trading vessel, most famous of tt 3 Broads boats is almost extinct. Only one, the Albion, survives, earning her living with holiday cruises. Her large brown sail towering above the motor cruisers is a reminder of earlier, more elegant, days. Narrator TOM SALMON

: The Tuesday Western: Destry Rides Again

continues a season of Hollywood's classic Westerns, starring
James Stewart
Marlene Dietrich
This slam-bang, action-filled Western satire has often been copied but never matched. James Stewart stars as Thomas Jefferson Destry Jr, a mild-mannered, peace-loving man hired by Wash Dinsdale to clean up the frontier town of Bottle Neck. While professing a dislike for firearms, Destry nevertheless takes on the bad men of Bottle Neck as well as the town's saloon entertainer, Frenchy, who is played with great relish by Marlene Dietrich.

: Ireland: A Television History

The last of 13 programmes Written and presented by Robert Kee
Prisoners of History
Ireland's past has formed Ireland's and Northern Ireland's present. Eire still seeks the unity of all Ireland; the Protestant North still resists; Catholics in Northern Ireland are still disaffected; Britain is still involved.
A decade of violence, in which more than 2,000 have been killed, has only hardened attitudes, though politicians still work for a union of hearts and minds, or at least agreement to differ and to live in peace. There are few signs of movement.
Both in the heartland of the Northern Protestant majority and in the Catholic communities they surround, there are those who see themselves as prisoners of history. Need they always remain so? Film research VICTORIA WEGG-PROSSER Film editor SIMON HAMMOND Associate producers
Extracts from this programme appear in THE LISTENER dated 26 February and the series will be discussed in Did You See .. ? on Sunday 8 March

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.

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.
