List Of BBC Radio 4 Programmes
This is a list of current and former programmes broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
When it came into existence – on 30 September 1967 – Radio 4 inherited a great many continuing programme series which had been initiated prior to that date by its predecessor, the BBC Home Service (1939-1967), and in some cases even by stations which had preceded the Home Service. Such inherited programmes are included in the list.
The years indicated in brackets after programme titles refer to the dates, where known, of each programme's first, subsequent, and final broadcasts – and, in cases where Radio 4 programmes began their run on stations other than the Home Service, the names of those originating stations are also shown.
Note that many of Radio 4's past comedy and drama productions have been, and continue to be, rerun on the digital radio channel BBC Radio 4 Extra (previously Radio 7).

Famous quotes containing the words list of, radio, list and/or bbc:
“A mans interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The radio ... goes on early in the morning and is listened to at all hours of the day, until nine, ten and often eleven oclock in the evening. This is certainly a sign that the grown-ups have infinite patience, but it also means that the power of absorption of their brains is pretty limited, with exceptions, of courseI dont want to hurt anyones feelings. One or two news bulletins would be ample per day! But the old geese, wellIve said my piece!”
—Anne Frank (19291945)
“Hey, you dress up our town very nicely. You dont look out the Chamber of Commerce is going to list you in their publicity with the local attractions.”
—Robert M. Fresco, and Jack Arnold. Dr. Matt Hastings (John Agar)
“The word conservative is used by the BBC as a portmanteau word of abuse for anyone whose views differ from the insufferable, smug, sanctimonious, naive, guilt-ridden, wet, pink orthodoxy of that sunset home of the third-rate minds of that third-rate decade, the nineteen-sixties.”
—Norman Tebbit (b. 1931)
