: The Nineties

Stories from the last Victorians and the first Edwardians.
You Win Some, You Lose Some At the beginning of this century, the horse was still king of the road. In this programme, a brigadier and a butcher's boy of the era remember how their love of horseriding and racing was conceived. Virtually born in the saddle, Brigadier Roscoe Harvey rode in the 1928 Grand National, went pig-sticking in imperial India and won distinction in battle; while
Frank Hill recalls, with pride, beating the system by transforming himself from butcher's boy to gentleman jockey. Together with an African gambler and a bookie, they draw us into the exotic and dangerous world of betting and horse racing 70 years ago. The people of that milieu share a passion for the life of action and chance - yet retain an irrepressible charm and an infectious sense of fun.

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.
