: The Season Opens

Devised and produced by PATRICK BEECH and C. J. PENNETHORNE HUGHES
About this time in every year The same phenomena appear. For it is just about this date
That many cease to hibernate.
The Travelling Showman sorts his wares;
The Pierman renovates his chairs ;
Their pitches anxious Groundsmen roll;
Their tours the charabancs extol ;
On pleasure trips new cruisers steam, Whilst road-side vendors shout ' Ice-
And each in his own peculiar way Prepares for public holiday.

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.
