: 'MY OLD SHAKO, 1889-1939

Donald R. Maclaren 's scrapbooktype survey of the last fifty years in Scotland is one of the shows that had to be cancelled during the crisis in September.
Radio, zeppelins, appendicitis ... varied, indeed, are the features of the period he is recalling, and listeners will note the changing tempo of the world as it is set against the background of three generations of a typical Scottish family. The tale of these fifty astounding years is not all history ; as might be guessed from the title, the author has not forgotten the songs of the stage successes of the period.

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.
