3: My Adventure in Norfolk
The door was pushed open from inside and something fell out on me. It wedged me against the wall. It also knocked the candle out of my hand. I felt, rather gingerly, and found it was a man - a dead man - with a moustache.

Five short stories by A. J. ALAN Read by IAN CARMICHAEL 4: A Joy Ride
The man himself opened the door, and the moment I saw him I began to have doubts. He didn't look the sort of person you'd expect to steal motor cars. He never asked me what I wanted. He simply said, 'Glory be! Can you draw a cork?'

Five short stories by A. j. ALAN Read by IAN CARMICHAEL 5: The Visitors' Book
The fog got so bad that I couldn't see across the room and my eyes began to smart. I said, 'This isn't fog, it's smoke,' and I tried to get out of the bed but I couldn't. The bedclothes seemed so heavy that they weighed me down.

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.
