: Happy Events

An anthology of baby books
Almost as soon as printing was invented, doctors began to write advice for parents on the upbringing of their children. The first known English baby book appeared in 1545 and the flow of advice to parents has not stopped since.
JOAN YORKE has been looking through some of the baby books written over the past 300 years and presents a selection of their (often contradictory) advice on child care.

: Election Special

A majority - big or small?
Your verdict at the polls
Results flashed from the counts
Forecasts Analysis
With 200 or more constituencies still to declare their results on the day after polling, the nation may be in for a 'cliff-hanger' climax determining the size of the next Governments overall majority. The odds are that one or other Party will pick up the magic 315th seat sometime after midday.
Whether on your domestic set, a car radio, or a transistor where you work, Radio 4 invites you to keep in touch with the latest results with the least possible disturbance to what you have to do.
As in the overnight operation, Radio 4's special Election team concentrates on flashes from constituencies of special interest and interviews with leading Party spokesmen.

: The Ugly Duchess

Madame at Court
First of two programmes in which Miriam Karlin reads from the letters of the Duchess of Orleans, the German wife of ' Monsieur,' younger brother of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Compiled by TERENCE COOPER Introduced by CORMAC RIGBY
Throughout her 50 years at the French Court this tough and witty German Princess was known by the grand title of ' Madame.' Her letters are among the most extraordinary documents about European Court life in existence.
' I consider myself so ugly that I have never been tempted to use much ornamentation. It was a good thing that I felt like this because Monsieur, who was extremely fond of dressing up, would have had hundreds of quarrels with me as to which of us should wear the most beautiful diamonds.'

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.
