: FOR THE CHILDREN

' Told by an Angel ' —
' Joseph and his Brethren '
In commentary, description and the presentation of actual scenes from the Bible, the Angel will today tell the story of Joseph, one of the finest pieces of story-telling in the Old Testament. His two young friends will follow Joseph from Canaan to Egypt and experience something of the thrill of adventure which the Bible narrative contains.

: THE APPROACH OF SPRING

Bird song in a Surrey wood
Broadcast from a wood near Horley
Bird-song from the now famous ' nightingale ' wood near Horley is to be a feature of the spring programme. This afternoon's ' Approach of Spring' will be followed during the first week in May with the Arrival of Spring', when the migrants will be with us (as Eric Parker will point out in ' April to June ' on Tuesday). Then during the third week in May the nightingale will be heard in three set periods of ten minutes each-three solo broadcasts. Today listeners will hear a description of the various birds which will be heard singing, and their preparations for nesting.

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.
