: I Know What I Like

A personal choice of records presented by Bruce Belfrage.
Bruce Belfrage came to broadcasting from the stage, which he graced for twelve years not only in London and the provinces but in Canada, the U.S.A., and South America. Since 1928 he has played hundreds of parts in radio drama-though none more notable than his recent role of the narrator to the Pickwick and 'Vanity Fair' serials. He joined the BBC staff in 1935 and has recently become one of the regular news-readers.

: 'THE HONEST MAN'

A play by Anthony Gilbert
Cast
Produced by M. H. Allen
Here is the first of three or four plays which have been specially written by Anthony Gilbert for production by Mary Allen. Each is an amusing story about a rather high-flown London pickpocket, who has a way with him.
The first play opens in a crowded
London street-in a shopping centre, where Grace and Milly are gazing at an attractive siren suite. Then comes a scream: ' My bracelet has been stolen!' Is it the man selling matches, with a patch over one eye ? Is it the striking-looking man with golden hair and beard ? Which it is, and what eventuates, is told in this first thrilling little play. Listeners will surely want to hear the next.

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.

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.
