NORA K. MITCHELL , in Scottish Nursery
Scotland is particularly rich in nursery rhymes and in poems written about children. The former include riddles, invocations, addresses to animals, and short pieces descriptive of the supernatural. Not a few of these rhymes (and in this they are probably distinctive from the nursery rhymes of some other countries) are intended to frighten. It always seems to have been a problem in Scotland how to get children off to bed and distracted mothers drew freely on the available stock of terrifying verse. Fortunately for the peace of mind of the average child, however, there has always been a plentiful supply of rhymes conducive to pleasant dreams. Nora Mitchell , who is well known to listeners in other types of broadcast programmes, will probably be more embarrassed by the great amount of available material than by lack of it.

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.
