Floral Pharmacy. As
David Bellamy points out, if a friend is ill you take them a bunch of flowers. In search of the medicinal herbs which flourish in our gardens, he goes shopping at a garden centre, explores the flower beds of Hatfield House and visits the Chelsea Physic Garden, established in 1673, where doctors were once trained in herbal pharmacy. He is introduced to flower remedies, submits to the soothing hands of an aromatherapist and has his eyes examined by an iridologist - all modem manifestations of the ancient art of herbal medicine.

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.
