The Banquet of the Royal Society of St. George, to be held this year at Grosvenor House, has been famous in the past for speeches by distinguished men - Winston Churchill, Sir Austen Chamberlain, Rudyard Kipling, and Lord Hewart, each has been heard in recent years; and the guest of the evening is no less distinguished today. Lord Queenborough, President of the Society, will be in the chair, and the toast of 'England' will be proposed by Mr. Eden.

: THE OLD MUSIC-HALLS

(New Series, Number 1) with Bertha Willmott
Tessa Deane
John Rorke
Denis O'Neil
Fred Douglas
A Section of the BBC Chorus
The BBC Theatre Orchestra
Conducted by Stanford Robinson
Listeners will welcome the revival of one of the most popular series ever given on the air. From October, 1933 to June, 1935, it ran almost continuously and featured every famous old music-hall in London.
It is good news that the four broadcasters who did so much to make it a success are all to appear in the new series.
This time there is to be a slight difference. Programmes will concentrate on old music-hall songs rather than taking one by one the particular music-halls. There will be a month's interval between the first programme and the second, after which the series will be given fortnightly.

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.
