: Cricket: Fourth Test

England v Australia from Headingley
The Leeds wicket has captured more than its fair share of headlines in recent years - in 1972 a freak thunder-storm left the pitch under-prepared and ideal for Derek Underwood; in 1975 protestors struck and ruined the wicket, preventing play on the last day.
Recent evidence points to today's wicket being a very good one and it should provide a fair match as England resume their bid to regain ' The Ashes'.

: The Whole Universe Show

Eight different answers to the question Where Do I Come From? Timeslice 6: Down from the Trees The timescale on the Whole Universe Machine at last reaches the point, 50 million years ago, when recognisable modern animals evolve on the planet. With the dinosaurs all dead, mammals come into their own and eventually the first man-like animal emerges on to the open grassland.
The Whole Universe kids are joined by a young chimpanzee to investigate why and when their ancestors came down from the trees. Their questions are answered by Dr Bernard Wood of the Department of Anatomy, Middlesex Hospital Medical School and primatologist Dr Alison Jolly.
Their guide to the Whole Universe is Ian McNaught-Davis .

: Prison

Four reports by Tom Mangold on life inside Britain's jails today. 1: Prison Staff
- The average prison officer is the best psychologist in the business. He understands his charges. He unlocks them. He's the first man they see in the morning; the last one at night. He's the one who could help them.'
Yet prison staff, from basic grade officers to governors, are worried about the way the service is going, and deteriorating relations with their charges -often violent men intent upon dis- y ruption.

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.
