: For What We Have Received

A Gastronomical Guide for Gullible Gourmands incorporating advice on the pleasures of the table and under it by A. K. Hamilton Jenkin
Produced, with a cast of ' bons viveurs ', by John Cheatle
Here is the ideal programme for after Christmas, a programme which shows the excesses of the modern banqueter to be as nothing when compared to those of his ancestors.
Development of food and drink will be followed through the centuries. It will be followed, in fact, from the Middle Ages when fowls and piglets were halved and sewn together for a tasty dish, through the gastronomic excesses and sadisms of the rich households of the time - which often included food cooked alive - through the whole culinary cavalcade of fish, flesh, and fowl, to the matter-of-factness of the modern table and provision shop.
Not only recipes for gastronomic indulgence will be given but recipes for curing over-indulgence as well.
You may learn odd things in this programme; the way that a puffin or a 'dip-chicken', for instance, should be cooked, how to stuff sausage with mullet's blood, how bread may be made with snails, and how, by keeping a live toad in the cask, cider may be sweetened. It is a long trail that lies between stuffed lamprey and fish-and-chips, but this programme will follow it in every tasty twist.

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.
