One Foot In the Past: Women in Architecture
Traditionally, architecture has been a profession dominated by men. But Joan Bakewell digs into the profession's history to identify the women who have helped shape the British landscape, from medieval prioresses to powerful aristocrats, and uncovers a wealth of innovative design. See Choice.

Director Sasha Bates ; Executive producer Basil Comely (S) (W)

8.05 Breaking the Code
Derek Jacobi gives an acclaimed performance in this 1997 film as Alan Turing , the mathematical genius whose cracking of the German Enigma code changed the course of the Second World War. Turing's uncompromising stance was a strength in his scientific work but, combined with his homosexuality, it was to lead to personal disaster. See Choice.

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.
