Many kinds of animals are able to do remarkable things, that are similar, in fact, to our own activities. Ants, for example, make homes, care for their children, sew with silk, use other insects as cows, play, and even make servants of other ants.

KATHLEEN GARSCADDEN
(soprano)
Miss Garscadden joined the Scottish staff of the B.B.C. during the first month of its existence. In those days she was called on to do all kinds of work, her first job being to read a talk to women. There followed immediately the first Children's Hour, and Aunt Kathleen (as she is known today) was called on to sing. Since then she has been most intimately associated with the Children's Hour. Veteran listeners will remember that Aunt Kathleen used to be called ' Aunt Cyclone ' owing to her sudden appearance in the studio when a weather forecast was being read.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
