As the Geneva to Stockholm express hurtles across Europe the tension and terror mount because hidden on board is a wounded terrorist infected with a fatal plague. Slowly, as the passengers begin to fall ill, the authorities are faced with a truly horrific decision: risk infecting millions of people or send the careeringtrain and its thousands of passengers to a deadly rendezvous at the dangerous bridge called the Cassandra Crossing.

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.
