: Stephen Grenfell is the storyteller in OUR DAY AND AGE

'The Invisible Enemy '
Written by James Dewar and Stephen Grenfell
Produced by Ian Curtis
Series edited by Alan Burgess
This week's story begins on a warm summer day in a small seaside resort in August 1946, when many English families were enjoying their first summer holiday since before the war. Hotels and boarding houses were full, and in the shops bells of cash registers were ringing cheerfully. But it was the telephone bell ringing in a doctor's surgery which was the first warning of the peril to health, holidays, and livelihood of the town.

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.

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.
