Reading your letters.
Fathers and Sons by Turgenev abridged by Janet Quigley read by Richard Hurndall.
First of twelve instalments.
Margaret Powell, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Flora Thompson, and now Ivan Turgenev. These are just some of the authors whose works have recently been abridged and serialised for Woman's Hour, and they illustrate well the breadth of literary taste which Woman's Hour listeners have grown to expect. Turgenev's Fathers and Sons, starting today, reflects the intellectual and social upheavals of 19th-century Russia. It is a story of the clash between generations, a problem which has as much relevance in the present day as ever it did for Turgenev's contemporaries.

Robin Richmond introduces the organ styles of

Sandy MacPherson (The Gaumont State, Kilburn)
Alan Haven and news and views of the theatre organ world
Time was when an evening at the cinema wasn't complete without the console rising up, bright with ever-changing coloured lights, and the majestic sounds coaxed out of it by the player seated at the mighty monster. Even today, when many organs have disappeared, there is still an enthusiastic demand for music played on the 'King of Instruments.' The enthusiasts can no longer be dismissed as a sizeable minority; the appeal of the cinema organ seems to be approaching its peak all over again

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.
