Libraries
Southport
B. T. W. Stevenson ,
Chief Librarian
(From North)
Southport is one of the finest seaside places of the North. Its libraries, however, must serve not only the prosperous inhabitants and comfortable visitors, but also the working population and its children. Recognising the educational value of this service, Southport pursues an active policy for the encouragement of more and better reading. Among the means adopted to this end are : exhibitions of museum objects, displays of new books added to the libraries ; lectures on library facilities ; posters ; a telephone enquiry service ; and the provision of a wide range of modern literature immediately on publication.

A commentary on the actual play by an expert from the Savoy Hotel
This is the second day of the two days' final in a £1,500 national tournament. Out of an entry of ten thousand pairs .from all over Britain, 88 pairs were left in yesterday. It is hoped to let listeners hear the calling and play of two or three ' boards ', ', and to let them know the ' hands '. The final will be nearly over, and it should be possible to forecast the probable winning pair except in the case of a very close finish.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
