: The Man About the House I

Mr. G. BOUMPHREY : ' The Tool Box'
THERE is always something to do 'about the house.' The question is how to find the quickest, cheapest, cleanest and best-tempered way of doing it and to decide who holds the ladder. Two practical people, Mr Boumphrey leading, Miss Florence Simpson in close attendance, are going to spend Saturday mornings this autumn explaining.

: Mr. H. S. EDE: Music from the Far East'

MR. EDE offers a conducted tour of the music of the East, with extracts from records from Java, Bali, Siam, Tunis and Persia. It is music that is different, with its own patterns and tone-values, inspired by ancient customs and local scenes, but it gives Western ears something strange, startling and rather intriguing from the other side of the world.

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.
