: Scottish Hour

A New Year Festival of Song and Dance from the Concert Hall of Scottish Broadcasting House
To all intents and purposes this programme is a repeat of the very successful Scottish Hour which was broadcast a year ago. Readers will remember that one of the interesting features ot the last Scottish Hour was the number s of B.B.C. staff participating in the programme as well as popular artists c who contribute to programmes during the year. Listeners might very well amuse themselves by running a little competition : Whose voice was that ?

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.
