Speaking Out. Half a million stammerers in the UK need help to overcome their speech problem and "at the moment there are pitifully few places for us to go," says Ron Kennedy who stammers himself. In his film, he features stammerers talking about their lives and the everyday situations that can fill them with dread. For the lucky few, successful therapy is an enormous liberation, and Ron Kennedy wants more courses on offer to stammerers of all ages combined with essential back-up treatment. "In my own case", he says, "I just wanted my children to grow up knowing me as a fluent person." Director Jane Gaylard

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

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.
