: Our House

Six families and their houses. It is not only stately homes which are infused with family history, and traditions. The walls, stairs, front bedrooms and loft conversions of more ordinary dwellings carry their own stories.
1: The Johnsons
A semi detached in Harrow 'I object to the label
"semi-detached suburbia". It implies I'm some sort of cardboard cut-out. This is nonsense. If you look at this road every house is different.' Bill Johnson still lives in the house he grew up in. His father had it built in 1924 during the Metroland boom. He and his wife Elsie have brought up a family who now regularly return home with their children. They have never wanted to move.
'To me this house is a place of security. It is somewhere safe to return to. It's the castle. I can pull up the drawbridge and cut the world out.'

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
