: The Legend of Robin Hood

A serial in six parts Part 1 by ALISTAIR BELL
Most people like to think that when a tyrant comes among us a hero will arise to oppose and crush him. In the whole range of fact and fiction there is no character who satisfies this need with more romantic exuberance than Robin Hood. This serial, written specially for television, tells once more, with a few original variations, the story of his exciting life and adventures.

: Everyman: Here Comes Gospel

'Gospel music is good news - we've had enough "bad news".' But Thomas Dorsey, grandfather of gospel, also remembers 'I've been thrown out of some of the best churches in America!' However, today gospel music is big business from the foot-stomping services of America's black baptists and the political rallies of Martin Luther King, to the superstar of last year's 'world's greatest gospel show'. But is the faith that inspired the great names of the past still burning as brightly?

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.
