: Take a Place Like....: Whitehaven

Tim Schadla-Hall , Stanley Ellis and John Grundy take a radio walkabout, and search for what makes the buildings, speech and daily life unique in the Cumbrian coastal town of Whitehaven. They explore Britain's earliest example of post-medieval town planning; the site of the last foreign invasion of English soil; and discover that the provision of energy has always brought prosperity, and possible danger, to the town.

: Looking Upwards Every Day

Using the 1933 Methodist Hymn Book John Gant has compiled a traveller's guide to the Pearly Gates and Beyond.
'When I was a boy it was still not unreasonable to speculate about there being "A friend for little children above the bright, blue sky", the same who wanted me for a sunbeam: they needed a friend up there before penicillin. The latest edition of the MHB I've not seen. It's said to be in harmony with antibiotics, moon shots, black holes and weathermen, so it must have been severely mauled, like the James 1 Bible and the TridentineMass.'

: Back in the USSR

Beatles biographer
Hunter Davies got back from the USSR with a handful of records and tapes, and news of a rapidly changing Soviet rock scene.
The Beatles, once regarded by the Soviet authorities as a symbol of social sickness in the West, received the ultimate seal of approval earlier this year, when Mikhail Gorbachev confessed that he and his wife were both firm fans.
With help from some of the big noises in Russian rock,
Hunter Davies gives his musical holiday snaps an airing.

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.
