: Mr Midshipman Clark

On 5 May 1799. Midshipman David Clark , from Arbroath, Angus, died in Jamaica of 'the dreadful fever of this country'. His career in the RN had lasted four years.
For the first time his letters home are made public. They tell an extraordinary story of violence and comradeship; love of family and a willingness for adventure. Readings from the letters, together with other contemporary material and music, give one young man's impression of life in Nelson's navy at the end of the 18th century.

: Saturday-Night Theatre: The Passion Flower Hotel

by Rosalind Erskine, dramatised for radio by Bert Coules
With Moir Leslie

It's the heady days of 1962, and there's a serious omission from the curriculum of the eminently respectable Bryant House Academy for the daughters of the disgustingly rich. Curiously enough, there's a similar lack at the neighbouring Longcombe School for Young Gentlemen. To remedy this glaring omission, under cover of darkness, the Bryant House gym is transformed into the glorious Passion Flower Hotel, where the lucky Longcombe boys can gather to watch, learn, and - for only a little extra - feel.

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.
