: Star Trek: Spock's Brain

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.

Mr Spock had never been known to lose his head in the most difficult of circumstances but he could hardly be blamed for what happened when the mysterious intruder struck terror in the minds of the men of the USS Enterprise. Even Dr McCoy is amazed by the subsequent revelation of the half-Vulcan's brainpower and gains a unique insight into his mental make-up.

: ...The Issue Should be Avoided

A documentary investigation on the Katyn Forest Massacre.
In 1943 the Germans, then occupying the Smolensk region in the Soviet Union, unearthed the mass grave of more than 4,000 Polish army officers. They blamed the Russians. Later the Russians reoccupied the area, dug up the corpses and put the blame on the Germans. The massacre has become perhaps the most baffling unsolved crime of the last war. Now a self-appointed tribunal - in which the viewpoints of the nations involved in the case are represented by actors - conducts its own investigation.
The actors are Michael Bryant, Lindsay Campbell, Dennis Edwards, Richard Marner, Stanley Meadows, Morris Perry, George Pravda, Edwin Richfield, Norman Wooland

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.
