: Star Trek: Elaan of Troyius

The new adventures of the Star-Ship Enterprise as it zooms across man's final frontier - space!
Its mission - to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and civilisations, to go boldly where no man has gone before.

The Captain has more than enough trouble on his hands in the shapely form of a female possessing curious qualities, without a clash with the Klingons too. Despite the forebodings of his friends, Kirk proves to have a powerful antidote to the peculiar potency of a woman's tears.

: Double Vision: 2: Manchester University

A series of three programmes

The professor: 'University staff, not students, must be in control.'
The student: 'Sit-ins and marches are in operation against a system we can't get into...'

Two men on opposite sides of the educational fence, Brian Cox, Professor of English at Manchester University, and Gordon Blakely, one of his students, have each made a film about the university in which they work. The university is the same, but their viewpoints are almost irreconcilably different.
Brian Redhead chairs the programme as Cox and Blakely present their cases.

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.
