NOEL COWARD 'S wartime tribute to the Royal Navy - the stirring story of HMS Torrin and those who served in her.

: Travellers in Time

Two Tales of Endeavour
Britain has never been closer to winning the America's Cup.
In 1934 Sir Thomas Sopwith won the first two races; his yacht was Endeavour.
In 1978 John Amos , sailing enthusiast and boat restorer, bought a rusted, forgotten and half-flooded hulk lying in the mud up-river from Cowes. Sopwith's tale is told with archive film of some of the largest racing yachts ever built. John Amos 's story is a single-handed struggle against overwhelming odds. Both are true sagas of Endeavour.

: A Walk Through the Thirties

Patrick Leigh Fermor's life has been anything but dull. At 20 he walked across Europe to Istanbul, an adventure which led indirectly to his wartime exploit of kidnapping the German general commanding Crete, celebrated in the film
III Met by Moonlight.
But above all he writes magnificent prose, is a famous raconteur, and has just, aged 70, followed A Time of Gifts with a new volume of autobiography - From the Woods to the Water.
Today, he talks to a lifelong friend, John Julius Norwich.

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.
