Tonight a new feature is to be introduced into Scottish broadcasting that might in a sense be described as a development of the' Odd Ten Minutes.' There is this difference, however, that more than one speaker will be brought to the microphone to say what they have seen or heard during the month. People who have figured prominently in the news will also come to the microphone, introduce themselves, and give an account of experiences or achievements that have made them ' news value' during the month.
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.
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.
