: Dee Time

Simon Dee introducing his guests

In The Guardian Stanley Reynolds said of a Simon Dee chat with Jeremy Thorpe, 'It was in this talk that the value of Dee Time seemed to show itself. Naturally no five-minute conversation is going to go very deeply into any subject, but in his time with Mr. Thorpe, Dee got across three very good points about parliamentary reform... and they all arose during the easy-going chat. I am sure that because of this they would have been understood easily and will be remembered... any newspaper leader-writer would be happy to get three points across in one piece.'
(The next Dee Time will be on Saturday, March 29)

A remote island in the Indian Ocean may seem the perfect drilling location. No population, beautiful weather, not even a foreign government to deal with for it is British-owned. But - there's this bird, see... and birds, feathered of course, spell trouble for Mogul.
Filmed on location in Ceylon, this story brings two fine guest stars to The Troubleshooters. Fabia Drake as Maud Price, proving that even Brian Stead can be brow-beaten, and Joseph O'Conor, whom viewers will remember as Old Jolyon in The Forsyte Saga.

: The Sky at Night: Jupiter, the Giant Planet

Jupiter is specially brilliant this month, but it is so remote that many of its mysteries are still unsolved.
Patrick Moore discusses them with Terence Moseley

Two bright planets are in the evening sky now. Venus is in the west, and at present two Russian spacecraft are on their way there. In this evening's The Sky at Night Patrick Moore gives the results of the investigation into whether anyone can see the crescent shape of Venus with the naked eye-which may help to clear up the mystery of the old references to 'the horned Venus.'
Attention is then turned to the other brilliant planet, Jupiter—, the giant of the sun's family, with its belts, moons, and strange Red Spot. Patrick Moore is joined by Terence Moseley to discuss this remarkable world which is always changing; large enough to hold more than 1,000 earths, it is a fascinating object when seen through even a small telescope, if only because one never knows what to expect next!

Guest: Terence Moseley

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.
