: Explorers

The last programme in this
British Academy Award-winning series.
10: The Story of Christopher Columbus
who discovered the New World in 1492 Written by JESSE LASKY JR and PAT SILVER Introduced by David Attenborough from the Royal Geographical Society, London
Incredibly, Columbus refused to accept that he had found a new continent. He had set out on his first voyage in the Santa Maria to search for the spices and gold of the Orient. When he reached the shores of the New World he was convinced he had discovered a new route to China. And he carried that belief to his grave.
Today's film tells the little-known story of what really happened to Columbus and his men. From the Royal Court of Spain to the slave camps of the New World, it traces the dramatic decline of a man who made a momentous discovery - but would not accept it.
One of the best films to end a superior series. (DAILY EXPRESS) A fascinating and powerful film.

: Summoned by Bells

An only child, deliciously apart
Misunderstood and not like other boys....
Sir John Betjeman described himself thus in his verse autobiography. In this film, based on the book and produced to celebrate the Poet Laureate's 70th birthday, BETJEMAN revisits the places he knew as a child.
Highgate, Oxford, old books and churches, boarding school, the dread of games, holidays in Cornwall, poetry and trains - so the story unfolds, a unique and touching account of an Edwardian middle-class childhood.

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.
