: Young Explorers

Arctic Summer
In 1974 a group of boys from Clifton College, Bristol, went on the first-ever British school expedition to Baffin Island in Arctic Canada.
Today's film shows the highlights of their two-month expedition in a land which is in darkness for three months of the year. The boys tell how they climbed glaciers, conquered previously unclimbed mountains and discovered wildlife during the brief Arctic summer.

: The Risk Business

A series of 6 programmes
Is Britain prepared to risk a whole year's revenue from the North Sea oil bonanza melting away on one industry?
3:British Steel
The British Steel Corporation is currently seeking a further government investment loan over the next five years of at least E5,000 million. Michael Rodd visits steel plants of all shapes and sizes in Britain and Europe to ask whether we can hope to compete with the rest of the world in all branches of steel-making.
Andrew Neil talks to Sir Charles Villiers , Chairman of the British Steel Corporation, and to Select Committee member Michael Thomas , mp, about the risks of making this massive new investment in the steel business.
With William Woollard , The Risk Business team follows the breath-taking booms and slumps of a nationalised industry where rewards might be magnificent, but where mistakes now will cost billions of pounds.

: The Sky at Night

The Swan in the Sky
Cygnus, the Swan, is one of the most beautiful of the constellations, and it contains some spectacular objects, including the very luminous Deneb - a star at least
10,000 times more powerful than the Sun-and the lovely coloured double star Albireo. Very recently astronomers have found a new object in Cygnus-a star surrounded by a highly luminous disc from which planets may be in the process of formation.
In this programme, Patrick Moore shows where to look for Cygnus, and describes some of the interesting objects on view there.

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.
