: SCIENCE SURVEY

Alcohol is food by MAGNUS PYKE, Ph.D.. F.R.S.E.
Legally, wine is classed as a food and comes within the scope of the Food and Drugs Act. Dr. Pyke looks at some of the biochemical problems of the metabolism of alcohol, reminding us that the line between a food and a poison is not very clear as the unfortunate consumer of the ' surfeit of lampreys ' discovered to his cost.

: AFTERNOON THEATRE

The Small Miracle by Paul Gallico adapted for radio by R. J. B. SELLAR
The Scene: Italy, shortly after the Second World War
There was one great love in Pepino's young life, his patient little donkey Violetta-Violetta ' with the Mona Lisa smile.' When she fell sick of a mysterious malady, and grew thinner and weaker with every day, even old Bartoli the horse doctor shook his head. But Pepino was determined that the life of his beloved friend should be saved. Pepino, too, was a persistent little boy who would ' never take No for an answer '-even from a Saint!

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
