: 'The History of the Hansom Cab'

A hundred years ago today, Joseph Aloysius Hansom registered his ' Patent Safety Cab ', the heavy father of the hansom cab which was later to become so popular. Like all new-fangled ideas, it was regarded at first with suspicion. It was patronised chiefly by dashing young dandies, and a contemporary journal writes of it, 'The design must have appeared to the inventor in a dream, for no working man could ever have hit off such a queer, upside-down, incongruous looking vehicle '. Yet there were nearly 8,000 hansom cabs plying for hire in London at the end of the century, although the advent of the electric cab in 1897 had sounded the first hooter of their doom. Two years ago there were fifteen hansom cabs left in London, and today there are two. The driver of one of these, now aged eighty, will be in the studio to pronounce a valedictory oration on what Disraeli called ' the gondola of London '.

: The Week's Good Cause

An Appeal on behalf of THE MIDDLESEX
HOSPITAL, by H.R.H. PRINCE ARTHUR
OF CONNAUGHT, K.G.
H.R.H. Prince Arthur of Connaught, Chairman of the Middlesex Hospital, is to broadcast an appeal for the Equipment and Maintenance Fund of the great new hospital.
The growth of the Middlesex Hospital has been phenomenal. At its foundation in 1745 it had eighteen beds. In 1792 a Cancer Ward-the first in this country-was founded, and in 1912 the Cancer Wing was increased to hold ninety beds. Today it has 468 general beds and sixty-four for private patients. As soon as it is possible to maintain the whole of the available accommodation, there will be 700 general beds.
Expenditure has naturally grown in proportion. In 1782 it was £2,200, today £136,000, and with the next great increase in beds and the opening of huge new departments, like that of Radio-Therapy, expenditure is likely to reach £175,000.

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.
