We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Starring Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell.
Time waits for no man ... except one.
A feature-length premiere for a new, offbeat American series in which an era-hopping scientist proves the past isn't what it used to be.
The mid-1990s: Sam Beckett , a brilliant physicist, is the head of a time-travel experiment which one day succeeds in working - almost. From a hi-tech laboratory,
Sam wakes to find himself in a strange bed, with a strange wife, an unrecognisable reflection in the mirror and a problem. It's 1956 and Sam is a test pilot - an interesting job for someone without the first idea about how to fly ...

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.
