: 'Here and There ', a summary of the Week's News, by Commander STEPHEN KING-HALL

Over four years ago—on October 17, 1930-Commander Stephen King-Hall gave his first talk in the Children's Hour. It was called ' Here and There ', and was all about the week's news. When he had given three talks you were asked to write and say whether you liked him. You, or your elder brothers and sisters, all voted 'Yes'.
Because he has given these talks every week ever since, and has become one of the most famous broadcasters, you may almost claim him as your own. You know all about his children-Numbers One, Two, and Three-and about those two Other children-Jack and Jill; you read his article every week in The Radio Times and think of him as Steve. Well, today he is to talk to you for the 200th time, on the week's news. He is to be featured in next week's number in ' People you Hear'.

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.
