: 'Five Centuries at Fotheringhay'

Fotheringhay is one of the most beautiful churches in the county of Northampton; it formerly had collegiate status. The Communion rails are memorials to Edward, second Duke of York, who fell at Agincourt, and to Richard, third Duke of York, who was killed in the battle of Wake-field-they were erected by Queen Elizabeth.
The castle was built by Edmund,
Duke of York. Richard III was born there, and it was the scene of the execution of Mary Queen of Scots.
With the help of a grant from the Pilgrims Trust, some very urgent repairs on the church have just been completed, and a new reredos has been presented by Commander Joel.

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
