: Agatha Christie - a Life in Pictures

The queen of crime writing cultivated a public persona that allowed her to keep much of her personal life a mystery. But her later writings provide some fascinating insights. This dramatisation of Christie's life recalls her experiences of nursing during the First World War, her marriages to a war hero and an archaeologist, and her little-known travels in Iran - revealing the author as an independent-minded and intelligent woman with a mischievous sense of humour.

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.
