: The Rt. Hon. the Earl of COTTENHAM : The Other Driver '

T ISTENERS have always derived much pleasure and profit from Lord Cottenham's periodical talks about motoring, its dangers and its technique, its joys and—above all-its duties. This is not his first talk about this last aspect of the hobby : he has always stressed the need for safe driving, and has probably averted many accidents by his warnings and exhortations. He has done a great deal for the cause of road safety. Besides being the author of two excellent books on motoring, he has been for the past three years Chairman of the ' Order of the Road.' This admirable organization is intended to further good-that is to say, safe-driving. It has at present 2,000 members : over ninety per cent of them go through every year of motoring without a single accident. Such a standard of driving is an ideal within anybody's powers. If you are interested, you should write to [address removed]. He will give you particulars of the Order.

: 'On the 9.20' Conversations on the Train-I

THE series that begins tonight will show listeners that the 9.20 p.m. each Saturday evening tends to contain two or three people who conduct a lively and interesting conversation on every kind of subject. This ' relay ' is a novel and ingenious method of presenting discussions in an informal and intimate way : the conversations that crop up in railway-carriages are often fascinating, and these, which are arranged between talkers of interesting mind and personality, should be particularly good.
The speakers are to be anonymous, unless they reveal themselves in the course of conversation.

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.
