H. M. Tennent , Binkle Beaumont and Donald Albery
Mary Ellis about TENNENT:
When I think of him, I think of something lyrical, silvery, and shadowy, and influential from a very modest corner, and yet you felt he was choosing and directing what he wanted. It was his production. Laurence Evans about BEAUMONT: He certainly wasn't easy. He was very difficult over money, and he was also very clever. Binkie would wind up with a famous play, two or three famous stars, at approximately half the cost of whatever anybody else would have had to pay in the West End ... Donald Albery :
Oliver is the kind of thing that every theatre manager prays will happen to him, and if it happens to you once you're bloody lucky. with Jeremy Brett. Joan Savage Ray Cooke , Nick Curtis
Dee Griffiths. Freddy Williams and the Gordon Langford Trio and the help of John Perry

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.

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