: * A Promenade of Resorts

by Ray Gosling 3: Morecambe
' Seaside towns are always fearing the future-that the next trainload of trippers will be blind drunk, fighting fit and impecunious, or that sweet old lady will wet the bed, or that charabanc of Rotarian wives will turn out to be teetotal weightwatchers, interested in ornithology. Make hay while the sun shines, the weather can change - as Morecambe knows better than most.'

: The Lunaticks

by DESMOND KING-HELE Narrator Peter Jeffrey Freddie Jones as Erasmus Darwin and the voices of GEOFFREY MATTHEWS , ROGER HUME and STEPHEN HANCOCK
In the latter part of the 18th century, a group of men met regularly in or around Birmingham on the night of a full moon. They were perhaps some of the most brilliant inventive minds that Britain has ever produced. They included Erasmus Darwin, Josiah Wedgwood , James Watt and Matthew Boul ton. Their collective concentration of genius was given the light-hearted name of ' The Lunar Society ' and its members declared themselves Lunaticks. There is no doubt that they were the fathers of the Industrial Revolution and indeed of all modern technology. Producer ROGER PINE BBC Birmingham followed by an interlude

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.

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.
