: Tomorrow's World

From the North East.
Raymond Baxter visits Northumberland and Durham - an area famous for coal-mining and ship-building - to report on some less familiar research that local scientists are exploring in 1972. How can huge reserves of North Sea gas be safely stored underground? Can nothing be done to save oil-covered seabirds? How do you plug a leaky pipe deep inside a nuclear fuel pile? Just why are tractors designed in that distinctive shape?
With James Burke.

: The British Empire: Echoes of Britannia's Rule: 4: All Frontier and Nothing Else

An Imperial story in 13 parts.

In 1759 Britain won Canada in a 15-minute battle with the French outside Quebec. It was a territory larger than India, over a million square miles, inhabited by 60,000 disgruntled Frenchmen and some scattered tribes of Red Indians.
For the next 100 years the British were hard put to hold Canada against the aggressive expansionism of the United States which had broken away from the Empire to become its most relentless enemy. The British Army stood guard along a 1,500-mile frontier, the longest and most vulnerable in the Empire - in fact it was Wellington who said Canada was 'all frontier and nothing else!'
But under the protection of the British Army hundreds of thousands of immigrants, driven out of the British Isles by poverty and famine, were to arrive in Canada to carve a hard new life out of the wilderness...

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.
