There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,

Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
