Synopsis

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.
Second of three films by Adam Curtis about the attempts ofthose in powerto control the past.
You Have Used Me as a Fish Long Enough. Fifty years ago, a group of scientists believed they had found a way to wipe people's memories, and then reconstruct them. They were convinced that the prejudices and hatreds that led to nationalism, war and destruction were built on memories. But as the Cold War developed, the CIA became involved. This film tells the story of what happened when the CIA started secretly fundingthe memory experiments, and the scientists and secret agents found themselves in a world of paranoia where nothing could be trusted, not even their own memories.

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.
