: Queens': A Cambridge College

Mark Docherty and Lawrence Pitteway have started their engineering careers well:
Mark is sponsored by Rolls-Royce and Lawrence won an exhibition to Queens'. But Cambridge offers many distractions from the academic grind, especially the fun and games of Rag
Week; from jumping, lemming-like, into the Cam, to the alarming ritual known as 'Flanning'. The moment of truth comes with exams at the end of their first year.
Both fail to achieve Honours. They are about to be thrown out of college. Their glittering careers are in ruins. They are summoned back from their summer vacation to be grilled by their tutor. He puts them through an alarming self-analysis, before the long wait for the decision.

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.
