Covent Garden Market
Charles Hodgson takes a look at one of London's most colourful areas
Soon the famous vegetable market will be shifted away from the centre of London, and though some people may breathe a smh of relief at the tidier streets and absence of traffic chaos, some of London's most picturesque scenes and more colourful characters will be dispersed.

: SCIENCE SURVEY

Simulated Meat by MAGNUS PYKE , Ph.D., F.R.I.C. Science already makes a vital contribution to our food supplies- But some scientists are looking further ahead to the possibilities of creating something really new in their laboratories. Macaroni doesn' much resemble the wheat from which it is made. Dr. Pyke looks into the possibility of an equally useful but much more difficult transformation that might give us 'simulated meat.'

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
