: Danger - Take Two A Day

The first programme in a two-part enquiry in which Christopher Brasher investigates the safety of drugs.
Tonight he looks at the common drugs which so many of us take every week: the pain-killers like aspirin, phenacetin, paracetamol and codeine; the amphetamines prescribed to help us slim; and the sleeping tablets.
These are drugs which we take in vast quantities and in many cases we regard them as harmless - but they certainly were not harmless to some of the people in this programme...
(The second part of the investigation is on Friday at 9.25 pm.)

: Film 73 Special

"Graft paid to police here reported to run into millions" (New York Times 25 April 1970)
That headline triggered off an official inquiry into police corruption and became the basis first of a best-selling book by Peter Maas and now a film - Serpico, starring Al Pacino. Frank Serpico was a young cop who was revolted by the corruption and exposed it through the press. Peter Maas tells Serpico's story with extracts from contemporary newsreels and with early 'rushes' from the film which was shot on location in New York this summer.

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.
