: For Those in Peril

Last summer, 13-year-old
Mark Woodward drowned off a crowded North Devon beach within sight of the lifeboat and a few minutes from the helicopter rescue station. His family believes he would still be alive today had the Coastguard Service responded properly to the 999 calls.
Many believe that the closure of North Devon's Coastguard Station in December 1988 is at the centre of the mishandling of Mark's rescue.

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.
