: One Pair of Eyes

Doomsday Never Comes ... declares John Crosby , optimist, in this series of highly personal films.
' Pessimism about the future is very fashionable - and very profitable. But if I could have any period of history to live in, I would choose to be living right now.' So says JOHN CROSBY , the Observer columnist, who belongs to that long list of celebrated Americans who have settled in Britain.
In this film Crosby tries to bring a spark of common sense to what he regards as the current hysterias about pollution, over population, world food shortages and other sacred subjects.

: Having a Lovely Time

Colin Welland ... at the Seaside The scene is Blackpool - Lancashire's oasis - mecca for thousands of thirsty travellers raring to have a go. But the Blackpool of yore is changing. The new concessionaires are replacing the ornament of the past with the gimcrack of the present. Wrought-iron gives way to plastic, a trip up the Tower is now an Apollo Space Ride. But the spirit of Blackpool lives on, and Colin Welland joins three generations of Blackpool lovers who, despite all, still manage to 'Have their Lovely Time.'

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.
