Gwen phoned Mrs. Dale, telling her David was in hospital suffering from minor injuries following a motor accident. Maisie ran away from the Fulton household. Fulton and Fickling traced her to a cafe where she was working as a waitress. She admitted the Irishman was the cause of the trouble and revealed that he was her father.

: News Summary

Stephen Grenfell Is the storyteller in TRUE STORIES of Our Day and Age
18-' Citizens from the Scrap-heap ' Jimmie Moffat was born in a Glasgow slum. When he was scarcely out of his childhood he began a brief and inglorious career of stealing and housebreaking. By the time he was fourteen he was well on the way to becoming a professional criminal. Then he was sent to Thornly Park School, Paisley. This programme describes the training he received there -training that has made of young Jimmie Moffat a citizen who respects the community that once he despised.

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.
