When Charlie Elston arrived at Garlton he found a very packed town, but he was lucky enough to see an advertisement in The Church Gazette for a lodger in Baptist Street. As Mrs. Baines explained to him on arrival: ' Space is like gold up here, Charlie.' He found there more than he expected.

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.
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.
