' The Tragic Queen '
R. L. MACKIE
In this interlude Scottish school-children will have three glimpses of Mary Queen of Scots: first, of Mary as a happy girl in the beautiful Castle of Chenanceaux in France ; second as a widow of nineteen in grim, grey Holyrood. listening unwillingly to John Knox as he scolds her and tells her that she will bring ruin upon herself and her country ; and for the third, it will be assumed that twenty-eight years have passed and that the tragic queen is sitting in her room in Fotheringay Castle on a night just before her execution, writing a farewell letter to the King of France.

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.

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.
