: Andrew Marr's History of Modern Britain

2/5. Andrew Marr 's epic account of the events that have shaped the nation since the end of the Second World War continues with a study of Britain in the 1950s. For many, this era represented a golden age of order and affluence, but such prosperity belied the growing number of frustrated people who were hungry for change. The working classes didn't want to "know their place" any longer, nuclear protesters became ever more vocal and a new breed of political satirists taught the nation to laugh at, and question, their leaders. Director/Producer Fatima Salaria

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.
