: Experts in Action

Day of the Big Burn
' On 29 July we really lost everything we'd done ... all hell broke loose.'
Bill Jackson. Expert fire fighter, British Columbia Forest Service
All morning he'd attacked the giant forest fire with bulldozers, and water-bombing helicopters. Then the wind rose. 'There was just a wall of flame ... and a column of smoke seven miles high ... the 707 jets were diverting round it ... I've never seen anything like it.'

: Nairn Across Britain

From London to Lancashire
Ian Nairn, writer, journalist and outspoken critic of the environment, tonight takes the first of three journeys north through the British Isles to look at the land we live in. Following an imaginary straight line between London and Manchester, and ignoring the motorways, Nairn finds it to be a journey of surprises, including: a church-like building that is actually a pub; a village on the brink of a quarry; an arcade due for demolition; and a city suburb almost wiped out by redevelopers.

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.
