: Radio Ballads: 1/6: The Song of Steel

Radio 2 combines social commentary, sound effects and specially commissioned music in an inspired series that takes its cue from the radio documentaries made by Ewan MacColl, Peggy Seeger and Charles Parker in 1958. A year in the making, this series starts with a look at the decline of the steel industry in Sheffield and Rotherham, boosted by the songs of John Tams, Kate Rusby, Julie Matthews and Ray Hearne.

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

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.
