: The Year of the Bulldozer

' Nowadays kids use cine-cameras just like pencils or crayons,' said TED ROCKLEY , 22-year-old prize-winner in the 5th International Animated Film Contest for Young People. The youngest prize-winner was 12, the oldest 22, and their films - on the theme of European Architectural Heritage Year-show how clearly the young Europeans see the dangers that threaten our towns and villages. Now, at the end of 1975, here is a chance to see again the prizewinning films. Commentary TONY CASH

Wales v Australia Introduced by NIGEL STARMER-SMITH
If history is anything to go by the Australians have a hard task. In previous matches against Wales they have suffered five defeats out of six. Their only success was in 1966, when Wales were Five Nations champions - as now. Then, against a Welsh side including such great players as BARRY JOHN , DELME THOMAS and GERALD DAVIES , the Australians raised their game to win by 14 points to 11.

: Open Door:

Community Christmas Party So this is Christmas
St Agnes's Church Hall in Moseley, Birmingham, is the unlikely setting for a live television community Christmas Party for more than 100 people from all over the British Isles. Among the entertainers : a steel band, folk singers, puppet theatre and a dancing dragon. And the Open Door community - people who've made their own programmes over the past three years - provide the interviewers and interviewees.
They show what can be done by way of help and self-help for those for whom Christmas might otherwise be a lonely, bitter experience.

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.
