: The British Empire: Echoes of Britannia's Rule

- A series of 13 programmes
11: The Gift of Endless Dreams Joseph Conrad , sea captain turned novelist, wrote of ' the bewitching breath of the Eastern waters ... the gift of endless dreams.' In the China seas the British dreamt of endless power, endless wealth, and endless superiority. The heart of their dreams was Singapore, gateway to the East, fulcrum of Asian trade - and by the 1930s an impressive fortress.

: Film of the Week: The Roots of Heaven

starring
Trevor Howard , Juliette Greco Errol Flynn , Eddie Albert Orson Welles
A star-studded cast, some spectacular African locations and a strong story based on Romain Gary 's award-winning novel all combine in this powerful and colourful film directed by John Huston and produced by Darryl F. Zanuck.
Trevor Howard stars as a fanatical idealist bent on stopping the wholesale slaughter of Africa's elephants. Errol Flynn , in his last Hollywood film, gives one of the film's best performances and in a guest appearance Orson Welles adds a hilarious touch of comedy.

Three Looms Waiting for Dorothy Keathcote teacher of drama
A mill girl at 14, at 20 a student at a theatre school in Bradford and a lecturer in educational drama at the age of 24, DOROTHY HEATHCOTE , housewife, is one of the most remarkable figures in English drama in recent years.
Today she works in Tyneside with a wide variety of young people, and at a hospital for the mentally subnormal. She knows that if she fails there are always ' three looms waiting' for her in the mill. She is unlikely to need them. Commentary by RONALD EYRE

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.
