: Newsround Extra: The Spy Business

Every year America spends more than three billion pounds collecting information. Every week nearly half a million Russian agents file secret data about the rest of the world. Every day over 50 spy satellites from different countries look down at the world and take thousands of detailed pictures.

All this is just a part of the vast business of international spying. So who are the spies? How do they work? And why do countries need to spy on each other?

: Bellamy's Europe: 1: Vive la difference!

A series of ten films presenting a personal view of the European countryside.
Only 22 miles of water separate the South of England from the North of France. You might expect them to share the same plants and animals, but there are many differences. Why do the Edible Frog and the Salamander prefer France, and why are the Yew and Ivy more at home over here?
David Bellamy sets out, Captain Webb style, to solve these and other mysteries.

: The Great American Picture Star: John Wayne

A Bicentennial portra'it of the actor who, perhaps more than any other, represents the ideal
American. Shot in the United States earlier this summer, the film takes a look at America's view of John Wayne and John Wayne 's view of America. He talks about the modern film industry, politicians, women's liberation and civil rights. And for the first time he permits cameras aboard his converted minesweeper, The Wild Goose, for a sail along the coast of Mexico with his family.

: Omnibus

Introduced by Humphrey Burton Beyond a Boundary
' What do they know of cricket who only cricket know? '
The Trinidad author, C. L. R. James looks beyond the boundaries within which the game of cricket is conventionally seen. He traces the influence of cricket on Caribbean society and reflects on the connections between organised sport, aesthetics and politics in both 19th-century Britain and Greece in the fifth century BC.
' We may some day be able to answer Tolstoy's exasperated and exasperating question " What is art? " But only when we learn to integrate our vision of Walcott on the back foot through the covers with the outstretched arm of the Olympic Apollo.'

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.
