4: Metropolitan Police Dogs
1 A Policeman's lot is not a happy one,' they say, but it's a different Story for the Police Dog - as Peter West finds out at the Metropolitan Police Dog Training Establishment at Keston, Kent.
Tails wag a lot during training-whilst workers like ' Pytch ' and ' Leo ' - both labradors - show us how effortless it is to find drugs, guns, and explosives which a human being would never detect.

: He Who Dares

Five true stories of people who survived against all odds 4: Seven Seconds to Run
At midnight on 1 October 1969, George Fletcher and Stephen Hambrook knew there was an 80 per cent chance they would be destroyed. The mine they were working on contained 1,500 lbs of explosive: the time fuse had seven seconds left to run.
This film reconstructs that night with the Bomb Disposal men who were there at the time. What happened to the land mine, and why was 1 October the most dangerous night of their lives?

Part created by JOHNNY SPEIGHT Lionel moves into the Neighbourhood
Lionel and Archie are in complete agreement on one basic issue: it is ludicrous to suggest that at least 12 per cent of Archie's neighbours should be black. After all, as Lionel points out, if you follow that kind of reasoning through to its logical conclusion then 88 per cent of the Harlem Globetrotters would have to be white! starring

With Good News from Ghent
Browning's poem ' How they brought the good news from Ghent to Aix' is the theme behind the third in the series of European journeys. While attempting to discover whether or not Browning did actually make the journey across Belgium, Ian Nairn finds experiences both pleasurable and sad in this country tinted with a feeling of happy madness.

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.
