: Star Trek: Shore Leave

This week: Shore Leave
The crew of USS Enterprise truly think they are in wonderland when they take a well-earned rest on a beautiful planet.
To see a giant white rabbit, however surprising, is no cause for alarm, but a ferocious sword-wielding Samurai warrior is a very different kettle of fish, to mix metaphors, and their pleasure soon gives way to terror with astounding results.

: South Africa Loves Jesus

A new documentary by HUGH BURNETT who reports on the violent and peaceful ways in which Christianity and Apartheid exist side by side.
African guerrillas - aided with money from the World Council of Churches -nail small children to trees to wither in the sun: it's claimed by the Moderator of the Dutch Reformed Church in the Cape. Racial segregation in church is based on biblical teaching, says Dr J. D. Vorster , newly elected head of the Dutch Reformed Church and brother of the Prime Minister.
Love dictates violence, when what you love is attacked, said the Dean of Johannesburg, before he was arrested. The trends in South Africa will inevitably mean a bigger blood-bath than Vietnam, says an African theological student.
They all speak in the name of Christ and are prepared to die for their convictions. But in South Africa even Christians have to compromise.

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.
