Cranborne Chase

Cranborne Chase, a place for woodcock and lapwing, where March hares court and display, and fallow and roe deer run free.

: Six English Towns

A Pattern of Building Ludlow, Shropshire
Written and presented by Alec Clifton-Taylor
Ludlow, in the centre of the Welsh Marches, is probably Alec's favourite small town. It exemplifies precisely his concept of a pattern of building - stone for the church, the bridges and the castle; wood for the medieval houses, often carved with great exuberance as at the Feathers Hotel; plaster for the ceilings; and brick for the handsome houses of the Georgian town.

: The Perfect Pickle Programme

Six encounters with the delights of home-made pickles and chutneys and the people who make them to perfection. With Davilia David and David Mabey
4: Sunshine in the Jar A host of new flavours and new pickles have come to Britain from
India and the Caribbean.
Mayblin Hamilton's pickled peppers and Dounne Moore 's hot pepper sauce give Davilia an unexpected gastronomic experience, while Meena Patak and Saroj Bajpai demonstrate the pickles that are made for the family in an Indian home. All ingredients are readily available throughout Britain and the results are terrific! But first Davilia strikes a blow for her Australian homeland with a melon pickle of distinction.

Charles Wood 's Theatre of War
When he wrote the award-winning Tumbledown, Charles Wood was returning to a theme which he has been exploring for nearly 30 years. Wood is the author of more than 100 scripts for stage, TV and cinema, from films such as The Knack to the BBC comedy series
Don't Forget to Write. But he is also a former regular soldier, and from historical epics like H and The Charge of the Light
Brigade to the vicious attack on the myths of the Second World War in Dingo, Wood has dramatised his own fiercely ambivalent feelings about war and heroism. Bookmark turns the limelight on this fascinating and neglected writer, with contributions from Richard Eyre , Peter Nichols , Richard Lester , Robert Lawrence , MC, and others, and specially-filmed extracts from Wood's stage plays featuring Richard Griffiths and Paul Shelley.

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.
