: Panda!

The world's greatest animal star is introduced by Desmond Morris.
Chi-Chi's unsuccessful love-match with An-An was merely the most recent outbreak of 'panda-mania.' The pulling power of the panda has made it the most publicised animal idol on earth. Discovered less than a century ago, it is as much loved as it is little-known. What is the success-secret of the chubby, clumsy, black-and-white super teddy-bear?

: How to Make Your First Million: In at the Deep End

The success stories of engineers and inventors who became businessmen and are making the products of tomorrow's world-now.
Peter Stone and Bryan Silcock report on three teams that chose to go...
In at the Deep End

In one case a BBC film crew went - literally - in at the deep end with them. Producer, reporter, cameraman, and managing director all went to the bottom of the English Channel to discuss the firm's new product - and to make a film using it.
The three firms in tonight's programme have more than one thing in common: their bosses were all key engineers in large firms who left to set up on their own; they're all building up their own unusual branches of the electronics industry; they all chose to set up in development areas; and they're all well on the way to their first million.

: Playbill: Jamie, on a Flying Visit

by Michael Frayn
with Anton Rodgers, Caroline Mortimer, Dinsdale Landen

Jamie's flying visit is a somewhat sentimental one. Because Jamie is calling to see Lois, an old and dear flame he hasn't met since they left Oxford ten years ago. He is 'still the same old Jamie' - but Lois has changed quite a bit. She is now domesticated in one of those small houses on a chic, newish estate. She has a noisy brood of children and a solid school-master husband.

"...very funny and sad comedy by Michael Frayn which more than justified one's hopes of his debut as a dramatist" (Daily Mail)
"The happiest Wednesday Play for weeks - a train of exquisite social embarrassments, each one jolting the next, the momentum always increasing" (Sunday Telegraph)

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.
