Blue Peter at 50 8.40pm BBC2
On 16 October 1958, a 15-minute programme featuring train sets and dolls aired for the first time on the BBC. Fifty years on, Blue Peter is the world's longest-running children's TV series and has probably been watched avidly by almost every one in the country when they were younger.
This is an affectionate and nostalgic patchwork of recollections (from presenters representing every decade of the show's history), mishaps, fearless exploits, appeals, pets and badges. It also includes out-takes and previously unseen footage (no matter how many shows you watched, there will be something here you missed). And, of course, Advent crowns, an out-of-control elephant, Tracy Island and sticky-backed plastic all make an appearance. JR

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.
