In both years the Chancellor of the Exchequer was to become a future Prime Minister, Lloyd George in 1909 and Harold Macmillan in 1956, during which year premium bonds were introduced, England retained the Ashes, the GPO introduced weather forecasts by telephone, Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier of Monaco, and Peter Twiss notched up a new air speed record of 1,132 mph in a Fairey Delta Two. Back in 1909 Bleriot flew the Channel and John Galsworthy's "Strife" was presented on the stage. The popular songs of the day included "Has Anybody Here Seen Kelly?" and "Shine on Harvest Moon". The theatre of 1956 witnessed John Osborne's "Look Back in Anger", and "Under Milk Wood" was presented at the Edinburgh Festival. The deaths were announced of Mistinguett, Sir Alexander Korda and Robert Newton. The popular music of the time included the "Dam Busters' March" and "Rock Around the Clock".

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.
