"If we're driving at 80 mph we have to drive as safe as a person who is driving at 30 mph" - Police Constable Gerry Waterton who, with PC Graham Rushforth, made up the crew of patrol car Whiskey Echo 8, covering the A1, the A1(M) and the area around Pontefract last Whitsun.
Their work included racing to a multiple crash on the A1(M) - "You haven't time for how you feel personally, you've got to protect life"; escorting a rare-group blood donor; and sorting out the tangle of Whitsun traffic jams - "They're all bloody stupid, aren't they?"

: Nairn Across Britain: From Leeds into Scotland

Ian Nairn travels north to complete his series of journeys through Britain in which he takes a critical look at the townscapes and landscapes in which we live. The railway dictates the route of Nairn's final journey. North-west out of Leeds and along the line of one of the most dramatic rail links in England: Settle-Carlisle: with a look at towns and villages on the way. He then strikes off north-east along the now abandoned rail route to Edinburgh to look at areas that may well have had their lifeline severed.
Among the things that capture Nairn's attention: a cobbled mountain village with a traffic problem; a county town that, for Nairn, is a minor disaster; and a working railway station-without a railway.
(from Manchester)

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.
