: An extract from

' AN ULSTER CHILDHOOD ' by Lynn Doyle read by the author
Although Lynn Doyle now lives near Dublin, Ulster can claim him as one of her best-known authors and short-story writers, for he was born and bred not far from Downpatrick. He worked for a banking company, and when he retired a few years ago he had been, so he says, a bank manager for more years than he cares to count.
As a young man, he began writing short stories which appeared in the pages of The Strand Magazine, and which, indeed, have appeared in those pages regularly ever since. The creator of the famous Ballygullion, he has ably exploited the amusing foibles as well as the qualities of Ulster character, and his ' Ulster Childhood ', from which he reads tonight, is largely autobiography against a County Down setting.

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.
