: In Our Time

In a series of 13 programmes James Cameron reflects two decades which are both history and living memory.
3: Waiting for the Sunrise
Today, 23 years ago, dear Grandmama died. I wonder what she would have thought of a Labour Government.
Thus King George V wrote in his diary when Ramsay Mac-Donald and the Labour Party took office for the first time in 1924. Would it, as some people hoped, bring a new era of equality and social justice, or was it going to open the flood-gates of bloody revolution?
JAMES CAMERON finds some of the answers from the people who voted the Socialists into power, ate lobster suppers at society balls or got the tawse at school; who toured Shakespeare around the provinces, heard Albert Whelan at the music-hall, listened to Election results on their crystal sets, and flew to Paris by aeroplane.

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.
