For the third year in succession Scottish Broadcasting House is to be the scene of New Year revelry. As on previous occasions, members of the Scottish staff will contribute to the programme, proving once again, it is hoped, that the staff can not only arrange programmes but contribute to them as well. This year, however, Edinburgh will not have it all its own way, Glasgow has some surprise items up its programme sleeve and listeners may confidently expect the appearance before the microphone of stars in the outside world of entertainment. Scottish Hour will be followed at midnight by an hour's music for dancing. The Scottish Regional transmitter, therefore, will be the only one running at this time and insatiable listeners in the South will have to go all-Scottish.
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.
