Peasants rush in, celebrating the carnival season" and Snow Maiden is duly found and adopted.

: 'THE TYBURN STILL FLOWS'

The decline, fall and rediscovery of London's oldest and most irrepressible river by Stephen Potter , based on material collected by Igor Vinogradoff
Music selected by Maurice Brown
Production by Stephen Potter
When, in the spring of last year, Stephen Potter was hunting up material for a programme about the River Tyburn he had the dramatic experience of discovering what was probably that ancient streamlet's true source.
The Tyburn spring lies cemented up underneath the basement of a Hampstead House, and the river that at one time wandered from Hampstead, via Marylebone, Hay Hill , Berkeley Square, and Buckingham Palace, to the Thames at Vauxhall Bridge Road, is lost in the network of sewers and culverts under London.
The Tyburn had a chequered history, and indeed is going through a phase of it at this very moment-for, as this programme will claim, ' the Tyburn still flows ', lost though it is.

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.
