' John Paul Jones ' : talk by Ian Finlay
Smuggler, slaver, pirate, buccaneer, admiral, founder of the United States Navy, Paul Jones is today most generally known only as a vague character after whom, for some obscure reason, a dance has been called. John Paul of Kircudbright in Scotland was far from a vague character. At an early age he was forced to run away to sea owing to his having been mixed up with a smuggling gang and being in danger from the ' Redcoats '. Born a nobody, he worked his way up through a life of gay adventure to a position which found him the friend of Lafayette and Louis XVI, comrade of Benjamin Franklin, and the first sailor of the U.S. Navy.

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.
