: Taste for Adventure

Diving to Danger
Narrated by Christopher BRASHER Professional deep-sea diving is among the most dangerous jobs in Britain today. Every year it claims its quota of fatalities around our coasts. This is the human cost of the rush to bring North Sea oil to the surface as quickly as possible. What then makes a man take up this work? Taste for Adventure follows a new recruit through his training, and watches divers at work 400 feet beneath the North Sea.

: Midweek

including Vassall
The Vassall spy affair was one of the major security scandals of the 1960s. The KGB had snared Vassall by blackmailing him for his homosexuality, and for six years he sold Admiralty secrets to the Russians.
Before he was sentenced to 18 years' imprisonment for espionage in 1962, Vassall's defence lawyer said ' This was the story of a vulnerable and possibly irresolute man who became the victim of a ruthless and pitiless apparatus, which squeezed him into submission.'
Now released on parole, John Vassall talks to Ludovic Kennedy about his life, the secrets he gave away, and the secret he tried to keep.

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.

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.
