What if his mother had an old reason she well knew for softening to this poor girl? What if the prisoner should trace back his fall to her? What if any act of hers. and of his father's, should have even remotely brought the grey heads of the two Dorrit brothers so low? withand

London, Look You by JULIA JONES
During the 1930s depression. Ifor and David, in spite of excellent qualifications, cannot find work as teachers. So they set out for London to find fame, fortune and romance. The play demonstrates the humour and courage of young people who laugh and enjoy themselves in spite of a dearth of material things which today are thought necessary for a happy life.

: Friendly Enemy Aliens

On 12 May 1940, in the interests of national security, the British Government interned 2,000 Germans and Austrians living in this country. This was the start of a curious. occasionally comic, often painful and tragic experience for nearly 30,000 ' friendly enemy aliens who were eventually interned - some for a few weeks, others for the rest of the war. Eric Robson introduces some of their stories.
' It was the older people who really suffered. For them it was a humiliation, and the irony was that Britain had no greater friends.'

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.
