: The Younger Generation WHAT'S YOUR PLEASURE ?

Using Both Ears
TREVOR HARVEY suggests that most of us miss a great deal of the pleasure in music by listening only to the top line or tune. He considers the need to concentrate on more than the obvious melody.


of Model Soldiers
TONY QUINN , the Irish actor, is a member of the Society for Army Historical Research and has what is believed to be the largest collection in the world of hand-painted model soldiers of the British Army. He talks about the practical side of his hobby-the paints and materials and cleaning processes.

: Parents and Children: Children in Hospital

Sooner or later most parents have the experience of sending their child to hospital. Often it may be for a tonsil operation. This is the first of three programmes in which it is hoped to touch on some of the problems confronting such parents and to offer a few suggestions that may be helpful.

Tonsils and Adenoids
A doctor talks about tonsils and adenoids and describes the reason for removing them.

Jean and Jessica
[name removed] and [name removed], both of whom have a special knowledge of child psychology, sent their children to hospital to have their tonsils out.
[name removed] sent her child through the normal procedure and claimed no special treatment; [name removed] having had one child who had already had hospital experience, arranged to accompany her second child into hospital. Each describes what happened.

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
