: Washing Day

Daisy Pain
The bete noir of the busy housewife is undoubtedly 'washing day'. It is safe to assert that not one woman in a hundred looks forward to this day with anything but apprehension. But, like most other objectionable things in this world, it can be made far from unpleasant if tackled in the right spirit. In this morning's talk, Mrs. Daisy Pain will tell you how many of the troubles of Monday morning (it is usually Monday morning) may be overcome, and no housewife who trembles at the thought of steam and soap-suds should fail to listen to what she has to say.

A Programme to Celebrate the Fourth
Centenary of the Birth of Canada
Consisting of Episodes from Canadian
History, from 1534-1934
Compiled by ROGER POCOCK and JACK INGLIS
This programme celebrates the four-hundredth birthday of Canada, and shows by means of narrative and dialogue and sound effects her vigorous history from the days of her birth.
We see Jacques Cartier of Brittany, who discovered the St. Lawrence, raising the Cross at Gaspe ; the heroic French explorers, the Couriers des Bois, pushing their way along unknown rivers in frail canoes ; the discovery of the Mississippi and the Niagara Falls ; the Incorporation of the Hudson Bay Company ; running fights with Red Indians; Montcalm defending Quebec against Wolfe, and both dying, and the Anglo-French alliance coming into being thereby, which has but one name -Canada.
A stirring story.
Alexander Mackenzie seeking the Pacific and finding the Arctic by accident; the Empire loyalists ; the formation of a Dominion government. We are shown the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and a Scotsman driving the engine of the first train-Donald Smith, who later became Lord Strathcona.
Then Klondike, the Great War, and on to the present day..... In a mere four hundred years a waste was changed into great cities, flourishing Iseaports, and fertile wheat fields by men who set endeavour above personal safety and weren't afraid to die.

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.
