: Australia The Last of Lands Tuesday's Documentary

Two hundred years ago Captain Cook sailed his ship Endeavour into Botany Bay, and claimed the great continent of Australia for the white man.
In this special bicentenary programme Michael Charlton returns to his native country to report on Australia now, after two centuries of white settlement.
Today, over twelve million people are proud to call themselves Australians. What have they made of that huge opportunity that history and the superior seamanship of Captain Cook presented them with? They call her a young country, but they lie; She is the last of lands, the emptiest (A. D. HOPE)

: The Sky at Night

When Mercury Crosses the Sun
On 9 May the tiny planet Mercury will be seen as a black dot in transit across the sun's disc.
Because it orbits close to the sun, Mercury has always been difficult to observe, and astronomers can only guess at the nature of this planet.
Patrick Moore explains how a spacecraft will fly past Mercury in 1973 and send back television pictures.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
