Evidence of Neglect
In fireproof vaults, millions of feet of film shot on nitrate stock in the first half of this century are decomposing - their images in danger of being lost for ever.
In publishing houses, the paper deliberately chosen to print the written word since the end of the last century is destroying itself at a steady rate.
In dealers' galleries, maps and the historical record which accompanied them have been systematically separated to satisfy enthusiasts, collectors and the demands of the marketplace.
Where will the destruction lead?

visits the Isles of Scilly
For the first of this series of brief musical tours, Barbara chooses this small group of islands west of Cornwall.
Although less than 30 miles from Land's End, they're giant leagues apart from the mainland in atmosphere and lifestyle.
Barbara's songs take you around some of the fine unspoilt scenery and she chats to a few of the independently minded islanders.

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.
