: NAVY WEEK AT PORTSMOUTH

The Navy at Home
On board Nelson's Victory, a modern cruiser, and a destroyer from Portsmouth Dockyard
In a brief article on page 8 Thomas Woodrooflfe (who is giving another broadcast from Portsmouth at 6.45) explains the dual objects of Navy Week-first to show the public how the sailor lives, where he works, and the part the individual sailor plays in preparing a battleship for sea ; and secondly to entertain, as only the Services can, a world of guests.
Woodrooffe, in this preliminary broadcast, will describe the beauty of the ships lying in Portsmouth Dockyard in gala array, from the most modern battleship to the oldest battleship of all—Nelson's Victory. She lies looking just as she did m her heyday, in the oldest dry dock in the world—lies there for ever ; and is one of the main attractions for the Navy's guests. Woodrooffe, with the help of Franklyn Engel mann and Michael Standing , will give listeners an idea of what visitors to Portsmouth are seeing-whether they may be going over the old
Victory or over the most modern cruiser. (West of England)

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.
