: Second Sight

Six Lives Revisited
Six blind children appeared on television 15 years ago in a documentary film called Eyes of a Child. That programme was made in a school for blind children and showed the care and skill devoted to bringing up such children to cope in a sighted world.
How have those children fared, now they are adults? What became of Mandy, Emma, Andrew and the others when they met the world outside? As they look back at their schooldays and talk about their lives today most of them reveal a sad gap between hope and fulfilment.

: Lakeland Summer

Lakeland has always attracted pioneers. For the city-dwellers of Northern England, the hills and the lakes became an adventure playground. Here the first steam-boats were tested - speed records were broken -and here the earliest climbers learned the techniques which enabled them later to conquer the highest peaks in the world. Bob Langley tells the story of the Lakeland adventurers -and himself follows the first route up Pillar Rock.

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.
