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.
State Trooper Larry Smith checks the bullets in his gun and blames Dr Spock for the rise in crime. Nightly amid the sport, quiz shows and soaps, television reporters confirm a litany of crime. high unemployment, the demise of industry, the rise of imports, riot, disillusion, a dollar deficit, exodus from the state and the rotting of small-time America.
West Virginia is not like every state in the union, but it's like many and it's hurting. Patriots and bible believers, the Smith family worry, as Gorbachev and Reagan bargain for two great nations, that the book of Revelations is proving true; Armageddon looms - even Khrushchev was right;
Russia would never have to attack because Americans are destroying themselves. It's Thanksgiving last autumn in Terra Alta. Photography MARK SAMELS Film editor TONY HEAVEN

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.

Feedback about Revelations, BBC One London, 21.30, 5 October 1988
