The Band of the 8th Bn. The
Middlesex Regiment, T.A. from the Drill Hall, Hounslow
The history of the 8th Battalion the Middlesex Regiment (so called for the first time in 1907) goes back to 1857, when five independent corps were raised in West Middlesex, the 16th, 24th, 30th, 43rd, and 44th Middlesex-these five being linked together in 1861 to form the 7th Administrative Battalion Middlesex Rifle Volunteers, which in turn became the 2nd Volunteer Battalion of the Duke of Cambridge's Own Middlesex Regiment in 1881 and assumed the collar badges of the regiment. In September 1914, the 8th Battalion sailed for Gibraltar, and moved soon after to the Western front. At the same time a second
8th Battalion was formed, a third 8th Battalion following in February 1915, and a fourth in June 1915.

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.
