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

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
