: Scandalous Women

The second of three documentaries examining Victorian life looks at the status of married women in Victorian England. They had no rights to property, earnings, children or even their own bodies - all belonged to the husband, to use as he pleased. Only one woman was exempt - Queen Victoria. Three women dared to break the rules: Caroline Norton, Harriet Mordaunt and Josephine Butler. Their rebellion struck at the heart of the establishment and resulted in a British Prime Minister being taken to court and the heir to the throne taking the witness stand in two of the most scandalous court cases of the 19th century.

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.
