A review of the happenings in 1938 North of the Border
Devised by George Blake
Produced by Gordon Gildard
The Empire Exhibition at Bellahouston Park, Glasgow, will be the main theme of ' Scotland in 1938 ', the annual radio review of the year's happenings. But this year has seen many notable events besides the Exhibition, so the building and launching of the Queen Elizabeth at Clydebank and Scotland's reaction to the crisis will be a good second and third to the main part of the show.
This year's programme will have an innovation by the introduction of an ' inquiring listener', who will give typical man-in-the-street ' comments and impressions on the year's happenings.

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.
