: One Foot in the Past

Actor Ralph Fiennes visits Clouds Hill in Dorset, the tiny cottage home of T.E. Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia. Fiennes, who has played Lawrence on stage and screen, has a long-standing affinity for the soldier, writer and leader. He retraces his hero's last years, leading to his fatal motorbike crash in 1935. For the first time, the humble post-war council house is about to be officially recognised as part of Britain's architectural heritage.
Elain Harwood visits Norfolk to celebrate the forgotten talents of Herbert Tayler and David Green, two successful young architects from the fifties whose preference for designing homes rather than cathedrals led them to reinvent the council house to meet people's real requirements.
Gavin Stamp argues that the Firth of Forth bridge is Scotland's superior answer to the Eiffel Tower. Opened in 1890 and constructed with 50,000 tons of steel and 8,000,000 rivets, it still carries high-speed trains across twin tracks. But years of neglect have taken a toll on a cherished monument.

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.
