: Star Trek: Shore Leave

The crew of USS Enterprise think they are in wonderland when, after a long period of stress, they take a well-earned rest on a beautiful planet.
Though it's a surprise, there is no cause for alarm when they see a giant white rabbit; but a ferocious sword-wielding Samurai warrior is a very different kettle of fish (to mix a metaphor), and soon their pleasure gives way to terror...

: Shirley Bassey

at Berns Restaurant, Stockholm
For Bassey fans this is the definitive show. Three-quarters-of-an-hour dedicated exclusively to the talents of Britain's most exciting girl singer.
In the vast, century-old Berns Restaurant in Stockholm, Shirley 'turned on' the audience of 2,000 reckoned to be among the most discriminating in Europe.
With songs like "I (who have nothing)," "Goldfinger," "Big Spender," and "Funny Girl," this is Shirley Bassey reaching a new high level of talent.
Bassey is one of the great cabaret performers with an ability to project herself across the stage and into the souls of her audience.
A joint BBCtv/SR production

Orchestra directed by: Alyn Ainsworth

Associate Producer: Olle Helander

: Three Great Stars Spencer Tracy: Fury

Tonight's selection in a season featuring the films of three great screen actors - Clark Gable, Tyrone Power, and, here, Spencer Tracy with Sylvia Sydney and Walter Abel, Bruce Cabot, Edward Ellis, Walter Brennan

Fury was the first American film directed by Fritz Lang after he had left Germany. Although Goebbels offered Lang control of the German film industry, he hated the Nazis and expressed a lot of his venom in this angry indictment of mob hysteria

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.
