(From Edinburgh)
St. Giles' Cathedral, in which Their Majesties the King and Queen are worshipping this morning, has Royal associations extending over many hundreds of years. It is popularly supposed, though there is no supporting evidence, that a Christian place of worship has existed on the present site since the time of King Edwin of Northumbria. Twelfth - century St. Giles was burned during an English raid in 1385 and restored by King Robert III. Succeeding kings bestowed their favour. During the centuries the cathedral has been put to secular as well as sacred uses. Parts of it have been used as an exchange, a post-office, and the town clerk's office; cannon have been mounted in the tower and exchanged shots with the castle.

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.
