: FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!

John Snagge is put through his paces as Fire Fighting Recruit by the London Fire Brigade from the L.C.C. Fire Brigade Headquarters, Lambeth
The object of this programme is to show listeners what firemen and auxiliary firemen have to do and are doing throughout the country today during their training.
John Snagge, a novice, will perform such practical exercises as firefighting; jumping from a window into a sheet; ascending an extension ladder to the top of the practice tower, eight storeys high; attempting a skilled job-trying to put out an oil fire with foam ; and trying his hand at another skilled job—that of extinguishing smoking fire in the practice tower before the smoke drives him into the open.
In the latter two cases the same feat will be attempted by both a half-trained auxiliary fireman and an expert fireman. A further feature of the programme will be an examination of the pressure produced by a hose.

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.
