: The Little Train to Lynton

First of two programmes Success to the Railway
In 1898 one of Britain's best-loved branch lines was opened from Barnstaple to Lynton in north Devon; a 191-mile scenic trip that took one and a half hours.
The track was only two feet wide, the engines and coaches mere toys beside the main line trains, yet it was a real working railway.
It closed in 1935, killed by the motor car but it is not forgotten. Former passengers recall the magic of the railway with the help of photographs and rare film. Written and narrated by Gwyn Richards

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.
