: Farouk - Last of the Pharaohs: Tuesday's Documentary

A film by Peter Batty to mark the 20th anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution.
The signs were auspicious when the handsome 16-year-old Prince ascended the throne of Egypt in 1936, but within a very few years Farouk had grown fat and depraved, clashed with his patrons, the British, and angered his protectors, the Egyptian army.
Tonight's film traces the rise and fall of the ill-starred playboy monarch through the eyes of people who knew him well.
'A man with five palaces but no home.'
'He owned two yachts and ten Rolls-Royces but was happiest playing dice with his barber.'
'Until he was 16 he never visited the Pyramids.'

: Cradle of England: 2: The Age of Experiment

A series of six programmes giving a view of man and his expanding society seen in the archaeological landscape of the South.

Britain's first industrial revolution arrived about 4,000 years ago when man first discovered the raw materials beneath his feet - such materials as copper, tin and gold. Copper and tin he used for tools and weapons - the gold was turned into incredibly fine ornaments for his tribal chiefs.
With the new wealth came trade, and an early European common market sprang up. It was a time of dramatic change.

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.
