: The Whole Universe Show

Eight different answers to the question Where Do I Come From? starting from the beginning of time.
Timeslice 8: Shuffled Genes
The last answer to the Big Question is the one about which scientists can be most certain.
Alan Emery , a professor of human genetics, and Lewis Walpert , a professor of developmental biology, appear on the Whole Universe Machine screens to explain in simple and entertaining terms the contribution that 100,000 generations of human ancestors have made to each of us. They answer the Whole Universe kids' last questions as, looking back to their origins in the Big Bang, Exploding Stars, Volcanic Gases, Cambrian Seas, African Savannahs and Ice Ages they begin to see a new-born human baby through different eyes. Their guide to the Whole Universe is Ian McNaught-Davis .

: Prison: 3: Open Prison

Four reports by Tom Mangold on life inside Britain's jails today.
"You're trusted to be here at Kirkham Open Prison, otherwise you wouldn't be here. You won't find officers following you about all the time. You'll be trusted, and we expect you to react to that trust." Open prisons are curious institutions, with little to prevent inmates absconding. But they function, and the public is rarely put at risk.

: Play for Today: A Passage to England

A comedy by Leon Griffiths
To Anand, England is still the land of fair play and the village green. But he is stranded in Amsterdam with his pretty cousin and their sick uncle. The trio are prepared to offer all they have for a passage. And Onslow is prepared to take them-on his terms. Are the two parties wise to trust each Other?
"A first-class play which played some neat tricks on preconceived notions."
(Sunday Times)
"...unusual and deliciously entertaining, fantasising on what is normally a grim theme." (Morning Star)
"One of the finest plays of the year... exquisitely balanced game of bluff and counter-bluff." (Daily Express)

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.
