Barry Foster and Mary Wimbush in Children of the Red NUM by JOHN CARDY
Early in 1945 the publishers of Mirage, a weekly comic for children, are considering the future of the serial. While V2 rockets fall and journalists and editors plan the fate of the ageless children in the story, they wonder what plan there may be behind their own unsatisfactory lives - or is life just a mirage too?

3: Religion and Apartheid
Some people think that the Dutch Reformed Church is the villain of the piece in South Africa. Yet in theory a Calvinist Church should be separate from the State. Has the true tradition of Calvinism got lost in South Africa?
Trevor Beeson , Canon of Westminster Abbey, went to South Africa to invite the Church to speak for itself He heard the views, not only of White representatives, including the Moderator, but also Black? Coloured, and Indian militants deeply involved in the new Black Consciousness movement - for these also belong to the same Dutch Reformed Church. and their voices provide the only criticism which their White Christian colleagues cannot ignore.

Helen and Edward Thomas : A Love Story
Compiled and introduced by Michael Flinch with Rosalind Shanks as Helen The programme is based upon Helen Thomas 's autobiography, written after the death of her husband. First World War poet, Edward Thomas.
She describes their honeymoon: ' Everything was enchanting; I had never been in such a cottage before. We washed in rain water, and even the rough towels smelled sweet. Outside the owls hooted and bats twittered and starlings stirred in the thatch. No other sound was to be heard, no trains, no people, no traffic, nothing but the sounds that do not spoil silence, but rather deepen it, and a little breeze wandering through the wood. and a leaf flapping against our window.'

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.
