: Scouts

An award-winning documentary tracing the rise of the World Scout Movement.
Eighty years ago, Lt General Robert S. S. Baden-Powell published a handbook intended to build character in British youth. To his surprise Scouting for Boys sparked off the growth of an international movement of Boy Scouts and Girl Guides who acclaimed 'B-P' the Chief Scout of the World.
Historic newsreels, rare archival footage and B-P's own home movies document the triumphs and tragedies of the Scout ideal in this rich and compelling story, that ranges from the playing-fields of Victorian England to the battlefields of World War II.

A Cabinet of Curiosities with Lucinda Lambton
A cigarette holder dropped by Queen Mary when she came to tea, a fragment of wallpaper that may have killed Napoleon, a pet chameleon, a book bound in a murderer's skin ...
Lucinda Lambton conjures up curiosities from the dark corners of museums and collections throughout the land. With her irrepressible sense of fun, she tells the story of the eccentrics who gathered these treasures.
Squire Waterton of Wakefield put his years with the foxhounds to good use - riding an alligator ashore.
John Joseph Merlin tried out his invention of roller skates at a ladies' tea party - but hadn't worked out how to stop. Philip Yorke of Erddig gave a mysterious box labelled 'consolidated milk' pride of place in his family museum. 'Now this,' says Lucinda Lambton , 'is a perfect example of something which nobody in their right mind would preserve!' Photography JOHN GOODYER

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.

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