In the glorious summer of 1911, the white halls, towers, and crow-stepped gables of the Scottish Historical Exhibition, more popularly remembered as ' The Glasgow Exhibition ', stood in Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow. Rotunda and amphitheatre rose from green foliage. Cottage and kiosk and pavilion bordered paths and squares, and the tinkle of enjoyment rippled about the shores of the Kelvin. The air was gay with music and laughter. Boys and girls born in that year are twenty-six now and if we sigh for the afternoons and evenings of that fading' summer, perhaps they will bear with us while we recall the songs that evoke them.
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.
