A monthly programme reflecting the current archaeological scene Clay Tobacco Pipes
The study of clay pipes is for different reasons important to archaeologists, historians, and sociologists. In this country the industry flourished for some 250 years and produced some interesting variants in type and design.

† Hothouse Children
An investigation by ALAN BLAIKLEY
Recently, a full-time school for child musicians was opened in London. Similar schools for budding actors and dancers already existed. Is it fair on a child to segregate him, perhaps at the age of six or seven, in such a school? What sort of general education does he get? How many children fulfil their parents' hopes or their own youthful promise?

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.
