Never Been Kissed in the Same Place Twice
A love story set against the background of the music hall written in six episodes by ALLAN PRIOR
1: 1 Was a Good Little Girl
The turn of the century saw the height of music hall. Artists such as Marie Lloyd and Dan Leno were already becoming legends. Lower down the bill came the hopefuls, struggling for recognition. Harry Viner was one of these, a comic from the back streets of Stepney.
One night Clara, the attractive daughter of a successful theatre owner, comes to see his act....

: Death of a British Tommy

Twenty years ago, Tom Simpson set off with the remains of a rag-bag team of also-rans and part-timers to race from
Marseilles to Carpentras in the 13th stage of the Tour de France. The raggle-taggle army made it. But Tom Simpson dropped dead at the top of a ten-mile mountain, where molten tar ran down the gutters in rivulets.
Les Woodland reconstructs the fatal day, with Simpson's team-mates, VIN DENSON and BARRY HOBAN ; his widow, HELEN; team officials HARRY HALL and ALEC TAYLOR ; supporter ALBERT BEURicK and journalist ALANGAYFER.

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.
