: Europa

Despite the collapse of many big tops under the pressure of rising costs and falling receipts, the Circus is far from dead. Its traditions are carried on by family companies which travel every year across Europe. It's not an easy life. Apart from financial worries, there's the problem of educating children, the lack of security in old age. Yet the lure of the Big Top is stronger than all. Film reports from East and West Europe.

: Horizon

Their Life in Your Hands
This year 7,000 people will die of chronic kidney failure. Many could be saved. It's a national tragedy - and largely avoidable. Two medical advances of the 1960s - the kidney machine and kidney transplant - brought new hope. But treatment has become a cruel lottery in which only 600 patients will get the kidney machine they need to live. Even fewer will get a transplant.
Horizon shows for the first time an actual transplant operation, showing the skill of the surgeons who can give life to the lucky few. But why so few?

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.

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.
