: ' I KNOW WHAT I LIKE'

A personar choice of records presented by Patric Curwen
Patric Curwen is most familiar to listeners as the man who ' turns the pages ' in Scrapbook programmes, a special task of his since 1934. But he had even longer experience as a character actor since he first appeared at the Haymarket in 1907. In the last war he served as an officer in the R.N.V.R. (Armoured Cars) in France, later being invalided to the Naval Intelligence Division.

: JOHNNY ROSEN and his Band

Johnny Rosen and his Band are one of the North's star turns in light-entertainment broadcasts. Johnny has gone rapidly ahead. While remaining in the North he has found for himself a radio position among the best dance-bands in England. For fourteen years he was Jack Hylton 's first violinist. He has played everywhere ; he went to the Continent over a dozen times with the band ; and on one European tour he and the boys covered nearly 3,000 miles in three months-a pretty good record.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
