The 'big outdoors' was a great attraction when our team visited Ottawa, and a trip was taken to
Camp Fortune high up in Gatineau Park. For centuries this area had been the undisputed domain of the Algonquin Indians, but on the occasion of our students' visit nothing more warlike could be heard than the beat of the pop group hired to provide music for dancing.

: SOFTLY, SOFTLY

Obstruction by ROBERT BARR with Script editor, Arnold Yarrow Designer, Chris Pemsel
Producer, LEONARD Lewis
Directed by JOHN GLENISTER
Barlow has always believed In holding his cards ' close to the chest.' But as temporary Acting Co-Ordinator he is somewhat put out when his second-in-command shows a tendency to do the same. And when Det. Supt. Arthur Jones plays his 'close' hand without reference to Barlow, the result is an acute embarrassment to them both.

: PEOPLE IN CONFLICT

For the last twenty years gambling has been my life. It's a terrible thing being a compulsive gambler. You've got no real friends, your family don'want to know you, and the only hope I've got now for the future-far my wife and my son-is to be able to stop gambling for good and all.

: VIEWPOINT

The Non-conforming Nonconformist
David Parry Jones interviews
The Rev. Leon Atkin on his idea of the Christian ministry today
Research, Gwynfryn Thomas
Producer, R. ALUN EVANS
' I'm the most orthodox minister there is if you take the Book of Acts as your source,' says Leon Atkin. Most people, however, would consider him to be a most unusual pastor. He enjoys preaching but is dubious of the value of sermons. His is a listening Ministry, as people call with their problems. He admits that half of them, if not more, are on the scrounge. He doesn'want the company of the conventional minister; but wears a dog collar, a crucifix-and the beret which is very much his trade mark.

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.

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.
