The family's steam-roller and trailer has weathered the storm through which they travelled to the rally, but it is a grey day only to be faced after a pint or two before breakfast.

: Forty Minutes

A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals.
Man's inhumanity to animals is well documented, largely condemned - and totally condoned.
In the name of scientific progress and food production, the vivisector continues to experiment, the farmer herds his stock into life imprisonment - and a nation of animal-lovers turns a blind eye.
But this year protest has grown louder. Polite objections have become heated arguments. At the extreme, action has taken over from argument altogether. The moral obligation to free animals from batteries and laboratories is held to justify a technical infringement of the law. So the animal liberators are breaking and entering, photographing, recording and freeing cats and dogs and rabbits and chickens from the battery, the electrode, and the forced inhaler.

: Who's Reading What and with Whom

is a literary quiz. Ned Sherrtn asks
Antonia Fraser and her team John Gross
— and Salman Rushdie and John Mortimer and his team Angela Carter and Sally Emerson what they enjoy reading, why and how and when. To test their knowledge and pleasure they have been set a few questions, some frivolous, some musical - all ingenious. Ian Page sings the songs.

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.
